Subject: SoCal SE's Sign Up for the Buildings at Risk Summit

Dear SEAOSC Colleagues:

The single, most significant educational event that SEAOSC will be hosting 
this year is the second annual Buildings at Risk ǀ Earthquake Loss 
Reduction Summit.  This BAR Event is a precursor to The Great California 
ShakeOut and has widespread exposure and involvement from across 
California.  Our Association needs your support.

Unlike traditional engineering conventions and seminar topics, the BAR 
Summit aims to spotlight earthquake risks in a fresh way.  It is an event 
that taps into the best thinking from a wide variety of industry partners. 
There are a host of dedicated sponsors, presenters, and organizers who look 
 forward to your participation on October 11th at the Bonaventure Hotel in 
downtown Los Angeles.  You can register online at:

I believe the BAR Summit presents an important ‘Defining Moment’ for 
the Structural Engineering community.   Our involvement and collaboration 
with other building industry stakeholders is an important thread to be 
woven into the fabric of our professional contribution to earthquake 
safety.  Show your support of our local Structural Engineers Association by 
 either offering to be a sponsor and/or registering yourself to 
participate. Invite others that you work with including Architects, 
Building Owners, Developers, Contractors, Inspectors, and Building 

While it may be argued that this event will not affect your day-to-day 
engineering practice in the short term, the BAR Summit event is a vital 
tool for communicating earthquake hazards and vulnerabilities that, in the 
long run, will make our work more meaningful.  Furthermore, it is an ideal 
opportunity to earn PDH credit for continuing education. I hope to see you 
there, helping to foster relationships and partnerships with other industry 
 professionals.  It is essential that we are vigilant to move forward 
seismic risk mitigation education that will help motivate our communities 
to decrease risk and increase resiliency.

Joe La Brie, SE
SEAOSC President
