Virtual Standards Committee - Volunteers Needed please read

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We are requesting from the SEAOSC board of directors to start a Standards
Committee online. This committee is non-partisan and we encourage volunteers
with any professional affiliation. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF SEAOC
OR A CALIFORNIA CHAPTER OF SEA. You may have no affiliation, be a member of
CELSOC, ASCE or any be a student of structural engineering.
The purpose of this Virtual Committee is to help establish standards to
enhance physical committee meetings with virtual meetings.
The long range purpose is to standardize our work so that any affiliation
can link into this network and participate as our profession grows with a
national standard and then to an international standard.
This is a major undertaking and we can use as much help as possible.
If you are interested, please send me a private post at wish(--nospam--at) and I
will include you in list of volunteers.
Again, this is a united effort and is not necessary to be a SEA member to

Dennis Wish PE

|Now that we have a Virtual Standards Committee, with current members under
|heading To: .......(shown above), do we continue discussions about virtual
|committee posted on the listserve so that all may have the chance to
|participate or limit the discussions by posting to members only? Are we
|limiting our member size? Who picks the members? Who's in charge?
|I officially nominate Dennis for the position of Chairman of the Virtual
|Standards Committee. Let's vote, majority wins(50% plus 1), and let the
|be in charge for now(at least until we have the approved, official rules
|Also, I have been posting my thoughts on the listserve in the hope of
|generating more interest from others who want to participate in the
|discussions and join the committee. Should I continue to do this or limit
|post to this member group only?
|My thinking is that I would continue to post my general thoughts in the
|listserve, same as everybody else, but limit the more detailed and
|discussions to this member group only.
|By the way, are we going to announce to the listserve the formation of this
|committee, with the following members, etc, and invite those who want to
|become members? Or are we going to pick only those we like to be included?
|What is the selection criteria?
