EERI is the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute located in Oakland CA.
It is dedicated to studying earthquakes.  One feature of the Institute is

Thank you much.

Scott,

Thanks again.

I was a member of EERI up 'til 2 years ago. haven't renewed as the
cummulative cost of memberships at such organizations has become excessive.

I'm going to be in Guatemala and El Salvador next week, and thought it would
be valuable to meet with the EERI team on site, if possible.
