New Chief Structural Engineer at AISC

Chicago, IL - January 29, 2002 - Charles J. Carter, P.E., S.E., has been
named Chief Structural Engineer at the American Institute of Steel
Construction, Inc. Carter, who joined AISC in 1991, has been instrumental in
the development of many recent steel publications, including the third
edition LRFD Manual of Steel Construction, AISC Code of Standard Practice
and RCSC Specification for Structural Joints Using ASTM A325 or A490 Bolts.
He also was responsible for the revitalization and reorganization of AISC's
continuing education programs. As Chief Structural Engineer, Carter will be
responsible for the day-to-day management of AISC's Engineering and Research

Carter is on the board of directors of both the Structural Engineers
Association of Illinois and the Building Seismic Safety Council. He also
serves on the Executive Committee of the Research Council on Structural
Connections and is a member of the ASCE/SEI Committee on Design of Steel
Building Structures and the NCSEA Advocacy Committee. Carter received his
Master of Science and Bachelor of Architectural Engineering degrees from the
Pennsylvania State University.

Nestor Iwankiw, P.E., AISC's Vice President of Engineering and Research, is
currently on a reduced schedule as he works to finish his Ph.D. thesis and
other selected AISC assignments, including serving on the FEMA ASCE/SEI
Building Performance Assessment Team studying the World Trade Center.  Upon
completion, he has announced that he will be leaving AISC; however, during
this period he can be reached at the AISC Chicago headquarters office.

 AISC is grateful for the many years of dedicated service and achievements
that Iwankiw has delivered to the profession, public, and industry. Iwankiw
joined AISC in 1980 and was its long-time Director of Research,
Specifications & Codes before being promoted to Vice President of
Engineering and Research in 1995.  As Vice President, he headed the general
management, planning, and expansion for all the staff and programs of the
Engineering and Research Department.

During his notable career at AISC, Iwankiw expanded steel research
activities and their applications transfer into the design community, one of
which was the new concept of the AISC Design Guide Series.  A long-time
member and former secretary of the AISC Committee on Specifications, he was
instrumental in fostering steel design advances in the AISC Specifications
to meet the needs of structural engineers.  As Vice President, he initiated
AISC's efforts to obtain ANSI accreditation of its specification committees
and to start the Institute's new Fire Safety Project, as Chair of its
Project Management Committee.

Iwankiw led the AISC emergency steel research response to the 1994
Northridge earthquake, including the successful development of the reduced
beam section for seismic design and the major governmental funding to
resolve the relevant technical issues.  As a member of the FEMA-SAC national
Project Oversight Committee, he helped to develop the resulting FEMA
guidelines and the AISC Seismic Provisions for the design community over the
last five years. Currently, Iwankiw is Vice-Chairman of the Structural
Stability Research Council, a member of the ASCE Structural Standards
Liaison Committee, and recently was elected to membership of the Chicago
Committee on High-Rise Building Design.

AISC, headquartered in Chicago, is a not-for-profit technical institute and
trade association established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design
community and construction industry in the United States. AISC's mission is
to make structural steel the material of choice by being the leader in
structural-steel-related technical and market-building activities,
including: specification and code development, research, education,
technical assistance, quality certification, standardization, and market
development.  AISC has a long tradition of more than 80 years of service to
the steel construction industry providing timely and reliable information.
