The Alaska Chapter of Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) is offering a short course for ground improvement and foundation retrofitting design. This short course will provide a lot of valuable insight into appropriate applications and design methods that can be used for reducing seismically induced ground failure and liquefaction risk at a site and for repairing damages that are caused by earthquakes such as the recent November 30, 2018 event in Southcentral Alaska. The short course will be though by Dr. Armin Stuedlein of Oregon State University and Jeffrey Hill of Hayward Baker who will speak to design and construction approaches of these methods, respectively. More information and registration is available here.
Great job Alaska! We are nearly 40% of the way to our goal of raising $7097 in 2019. The ACEC PAC plays an essential role in advancing policies benefitting the engineering industry by supporting lawmakers who support the industry’s agenda. In Alaska, we continue to see the ACEC PAC support our Legislators at more than double our fund raising goal. What a fantastic return on our investment! Key accomplishments that are a direct result of the funds donated to the PAC by members include: tax reform, long-term transportation funding, expansion of QBS, promoting contracting out, federal audit and procurement rules to promote uniform standards, and many more.
While we are off to a great start and ahead of many other states, we can’t slow down now. There are many ways to donate to the PAC, but one of the easiest is during the Spring and Fall Sweepstakes events. These provide you an opportunity to not only donate, but also a chance to win a grand prize of $10,000 cash! Alaska PAC donors are no strangers to winning at the ACEC sweepstakes and you could be next. But don’t wait, the sweepstakes drawing is on May 8th. Buy your ticket(s) today and then plan on doubling your chance of success by purchasing tickets for the Fall Conference sweepstakes later this year. You can make your donation here: https://www.acec.org/advocacy/advocacy-pac/ or by filling out and mailing the sweepstakes form.
Thank you to those who have already made donations and thanks in advance to everyone that will help us reach our goal this year. It’s a source of great pride that ACEC Alaska always meets its PAC goal!
