ANNOUNCEMENT SEISMIC SAFETY CONTINUING EDUCATION OF BUILDING DESIGN & CODE ENFORCEMENT PROFESSIONALS SURVEY Proposition 122, passed by the voters in June 1990, created the Earthquake Safety and Public Buildings Rehabilitation Fund of 1990, Section 8878.55(d) of the Government Code. It states that the Seismic Safety Commission may use up to one percent of the proceeds of the bonds issued and sold, or approximately $3 million, to: "...research methods, techniques, and technologies to identify and analyze potentially hazardous buildings and facilities, including, but not limited to, unreinforced masonry construction, as well as for the additional purposes of developing methods, techniques and technologies for seismic safety retrofitting of the buildings, as well as helping to develop and prepare building standards and administrative regulations relating to the retrofitting of the buildings for seismic safety purposes." One of the products of this program, Product 4.1 - Improved Seismic Safety Training of Building Design and Code Enforcement Professionals, is to provide building design professionals and code enforcers with a basic understanding and appreciation for the fundamentals of seismic safety, in particular, as these fundamentals apply to the seismic retrofit of existing, vulnerable buildings. The Seismic Safety Commission has awarded a contract to the Joint Venture of the Applied Technology Council/Structural Engineers Association of California (ATC/SEAOC) to develop and deliver the training materials. Recently, a survey designed to help prioritize education needs and identify preferred delivery strategies for the training project was mailed to approximately 9,000 building design and code enforcement professionals. If you have received your copy of the survey, we strongly encourage you to consider each of the questions and provide us with your response. If you have not received the survey and wish to complete one, please contact SEAOC by E- mail at seaoc(--nospam--at)aol.com, FAX 916/568-0677, or telephone 916/568-7922 and we will provide you with a copy. The effectiveness and success of this continuing education program depends on your feedback. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.
