"Structural Engineering is a
profession, not a job. SEAW is where I see this distinction"

"I joined SEAW shortly after
moving to Seattle from out of state and started to attend meetings regularly. I found this was a great way to meet colleagues and quickly found myself becoming more active within the Association."

"SEAW is the professional organization that provides the best quality education, networking, and code development opportunities of any professional engineering organization at an affordable price."
