I am afraid there are no plans at this time to offer the seminar anywhere else, unless someone wants to sponsor us. The reason we could do it here for free is that both Martin and I are local and the facilities were provided by the City of Santa Monica, hence there were no expenses involved.
In regard to the notes from the seminar, we are planning on posting all or portions of it by the end of this week on our web site (under "what's new?")

Ben, are you going to bring this seminar to the bay area any time soon? Sounds like a great seminar.

Yesterday many structural engineers attended the 2007 CBC seminar (structural) at the City of Santa Monica.
The seminar was perfectly organized and flawlessly executed. The presentations by Ben Yousefi and Martin Johnson were right what they should be: intense - but quite entertaining and informal, concise - but touching the entire pertinent portion of the new code, informative - and concentrating on the most crucial areas, comprehensive - and pushing toward self-learning. I think that most of about 100 engineers who attended the morning and the afternoon sessions will not need additional seminars on the subject.
The price cannot be beaten, and the quality of education was, I would say, at least not lower than at some of those pricey affair$$$ offered by the industry. In other words, the seminar was definitely worth spending 2.5 hours in traffic on the way back :).
It was also good to put faces behind some email addresses, and see some old friends.
Bottom line - thank you, Ben.
