Re: Wood Solutions Fair - Discussion of Seminar prices

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I agree whole-heartedly. Many of us are in a position where the cost of
the seminar has to be combined with the loss of a days pay (obviously
one of the lowly working stiffs). I am always seeking opportunities to
improve my knowledge and skills, and interaction with others is a great
complement to self study programs, but the cost is prohibitive more
often then not. As a member of both SEAOSD and ASCE I am always
dissapointed by the cost of seminars. ASCE seems to average 300 to 500
dollars, and SEAOC is not much better. The best value I have found are
the ICBO seminars (100 dollar average), but they tend to be primarily
code based application rather than concept oriented.

Add my vote to the list.
