Welcome to the SEAOI website! Whether you are a practicing engineer, a curious student, or an interested citizen, you can find the information you need here. SEAOI was founded in 1965 to advance and advocate excellence in structural engineering and to aid in safeguarding the public. In 2015, we celebrated 50 years of living out our mission in Illinois.


SEAOI Strategic Plan

I am pleased to unveil the 2017 Strategic Plan that is the culmination of months of hard work by SEAOI members to help us achieve our organization’s new mission and vision!

SEAOI was guided through a detailed strategic planning process by Executive Service Corps. Over 50 members were engaged in a process that included surveying of our membership, multiple brainstorming retreats, and the formation of four key workgroups. The workgroups included Governance, Outreach, Membership, and Programs. 

Each workgroup developed their own purpose, issues, goals, tasks and plans. The summary available here is the result of the Strategic Planning effort that will help to guide our organization over the next three years.

Thank you to all who participated and be on the lookout in the future for status updates on our progress!

--David Nickell, SEAOI Board of Directors
