I used to work in S.F., taking the train from the Peninsula - at S.F. at 8 in the morning and running for the 5:20 in the afternoon. I remember sometimes being upset to have to go home!. Although I felt that I always worked hard for my employers, I worked the hardest for myself - once 33 weekends on year! Per the continuing education and the problems with being in remote areas, such as Dennis has mentioned. When I was living in the Bay Area, I tried to attend as many of the SEONC meetings as possible. But when I moved out here to the country, I thought that it was going to be really tough to drive down to S.F. and make the meetings. What I hadn't counted on was the local professionals having their own meetings. We have a group called S.A.G.E; i.e. Surveyors, architects, geologists and engineers that meet once a month - this is good for the business side of the various firms, because the local public agencies also belong. Within this group is a structural section that also meets once a month, usually some first class meetings. This group is able to bring manufacturer's and professionals to our meetings, even though we're only talking about a twenty to thirty person group. Another plus is having access to the local building officials. I also know that there are two other similar groups, one at Lake Tahoe and one in Placer County. The point is, if you can't get to the big city - try getting a group of local engineers together and bring these people and issues to you. Haven't checked lately, but the SAGE group, will shortly have their own home page. Neil Moore, S.E.
