The Young Members Group (YMG) is a free organization of SEAOG members and non-members, licensed and unlicensed practicing structural engineers, who consider themselves to be early in their respective careers. Our mission is to encourage recent graduates to become involved in SEAOG through:

–  social/networking happy hours for younger members to get to know each other before official SEAOG meetings;
–  separate YMG meetings where guest speakers cover fundamental structural engineering concepts;
–  roundtable discussions about design issues;
–  outreach/networking with K-12 students, colleges, and other industry groups (such as the AIA's Young Architects Forum).

Spotlight on Atlanta Projects 
The Young Architects Forum has started a series of presentations focusing on the work of Metro Atlanta firms. These presentations are given by local young architects highlighting work they have done in the Atlanta area. The YMG has been invited to team up with YAF for the SOAP event this Winter!
 
Have you worked on a recent project in Atlanta with an Atlanta-based architect that demonstrates the importance of design and coordination between architects and engineers? We want to hear about it at the next SOAP! Team up with the project architect to present the highlights of your project and the coordination among the project team that went into making the project a success! Contact your project architect and email the YMG (seaogymg@gmail.com) to get started!
 
All engineers are invited to attend any of the SOAP events.  For more information about SOAP, click here!

Philips Arena Tour Recap
Members of the SEAOG YMG took a tour of Philips Arena in downtown Atlanta undergoing major renovations. Renovations included the demolition of major building columns and several upper level floors, the removal and reinstallation of tiered seating and club boxes, and the installation of "super trusses" to resupport the roof structure. Our guide from Steel-Fab summed up the renovations as "millennial-approved": more options for seating, more social areas, virtual golf, and a structure that can support the weight of a Kanye West concert. The renovations are currently in Phase 1 (of three), and will be the second largest renovation in NBA history after the completion of all phases.

Gone are the days of having to flip back and forth through the AISC Steel Construction Manual to find various tables while designing or checking a steel member in tension, compression, flexure, tension and flexure, and/or compression and flexure.  With the release of the 15th edition of the steel manual, AISC has introduced a new table (Table 6-2) that allows an Engineer to design or check any of the loading types mentioned quickly and in one simple location.
