The Structural Engineering Society New Zealand, SESOC, now represents over 2500 members and is the pre-eminent technical society for professional structural engineers throughout New Zealand. The Society collaborates with Engineering New Zealand, IStructE, SEAOC and other associated technical groups such as the Geotechnical, Concrete, Timber Design and Earthquake Engineering Societies. SESOC regularly provides technical guidance and support to MBIE, Standards NZ, Engineering NZ and other organisations responsible for the production of technical literature and practice guidelines. The Regional Structural Groups in Auckland, Waikato/Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay, Taranaki, Wellington, Nelson/Marlborough, Christchurch, and Otago are affiliated with SESOC and run meetings throughout the year, with a variety of speakers and site visits to local projects. Other core activities of the Society are the publication of a well-respected half-yearly journal, running of practitioner-focused seminars on structural engineering topics, and a biannual conference.
The management of the society has been well served by the current and previous management committees. Committee members are expected to lead projects of relevance to the society and report on progress at the quarterly management meetings. Working on the management committee is a worthwhile and rewarding contribution to SESOC and to the structural engineering profession. Here is the opportunity to support your Society. The committee for 2020 will be announced at the AGM to be held in Christchurch on Thursday 27 February 2020.
