2000 SEAOC CONVENTION * CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Nabih Youssef Younger Members Poster Session Grant
By Constantine Shuhaibar
Co-Chair, Technical Program Committee
SEAOC is pleased to announce the establishment of the Nabih Youssef Younger Members Poster Session Grant, after a successful first trial at the 1999 SEAOC Convention. It is a poster board competition for current SEAOC members under 35 years of age. The goal is to encourage younger members to participate in the annual convention and SEAOC activities in general. This year the SEAOC Convention committee will match the $5,000 donation by Nabih Youssef & Associates, creating ten grants of $1,000 each. It is hoped that this grant will motivate other firms to contribute in support of our younger members.
One younger member from SEAONC, SEAOCC, SEAOSD, and SEAOSC plus six at-large members will be awarded accommodations for three nights at the Bayshore Westin Hotel in Vancouver ($500), Technical Only registration at the convention ($200), and $300 towards their roundtrip airfare to and from the convention.
Any interesting or informative structural engineering project, whether under design, in construction, or already built is acceptable. One page abstracts of each selected project will be included in the convention proceedings.
Simply submit an abstract of 250 words or less and a sketch of the poster board layout on or before June 15th to Constantine Shuhaibar, 2000 SEAOC Convention, Nabih Youssef Younger Members Poster Session Grant, 550 Kearny Street, Suite 200, San Francisco, CA 94108. Phone: (415)989-9900, Fax: (415)989-9909, Email: csh(--nospam--at)soha.com. Awardees will be notified by July 1st. Detailed instructions for the completion of the poster boards will be sent to the awardees with the acceptance notice.
