The first webinar, titled Design for Stability, will kick-off the series on September 18, or SteelDay, at 10:30 a.m. Central Standard Time. This free webinar will introduce architects and engineers to incorporating 2005 AISC specification requirements into design. Louis F. Geschwindner, AISC vice president and professor emeritus at Penn State University, will present the webinar.

Speaker Thomas A Sabol, Ph.D., of Englekirk and Sabol Consulting Structural Enginners will lead the webinar. Sabol, who received his Ph.D. in structural and earthquake engineering from UCLA, will teach viewers how to properly use seismic steel design with the AISC seismic provisions.

The first webinar in the series is free to all attendees. The second and third webinars will have fees totaling $185 per connection for AISC members, $285 per connection for non-members and $155 per connection for educators and students.
