Cooperating Organizations

SEI is pleased to be working closely with CASE, CSCE, IABSE and IStructE on the 2008 Structures Congress.

The Council of American Structural Engineers (CASE)

CASE


The Council of American Structural Engineers (CASE) is a national association of structural engineering firms that operates as a coalition of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) in Washington, DC.


CASE’s mission is to improve the practice of structural engineering by reducing the frequency and severity of claims. To this end, it provides a forum for action to improve the quality of structural engineering through enhancement of business practices, decreased professional liability exposure, and increased profitability. CASE is organized into a Risk Management Program and a Business Practices Program.
