Volunteering for a NCSEA Committee
Thank you for your interest in NCSEA committee involvement! Please review the NCSEA website at http://www.ncsea.com/committees/ to gain a better understanding of each Committee. This will also help you determine where you can make the biggest difference. You must be a member of an NCSEA Member Organization or an NCSEA Corporate Member in order to be a member of an NCSEA Committee.
Promotion of your firm brings in business and allows others in the AEC industries to know you are actively engaged in your profession. The NCSEA 'Spotlight' assists in doing that. Each Sustaining Member is featured on the NCSEA website as a 'Spotlight.' As you complete the submission, please be prepared to share some basic information as well as photos of your key individual, most notable project and your company logo.
NCSEA would love to hear about your SEA! Have you hosted an event recently that you'd like to share with the rest of the organization? Maybe you're hosting an upcoming event, rewarding scholarships, or you're just proud of your SEA's recent efforts and want them featured in Structural Connection or NCSEA News. Please let us know! Just complete this form & hit submit, it is that easy to share news about your SEA.
Also, remember to add your upcoming events to NCSEA's Calendar. Visit this link and fill out the details of your event.
The NCSEA Grant Program was developed to assist Member Organizations (SEAs) in growing their Association and promoting the structural engineering field. The Grant Program is supported by the NCSEA Foundation, which was established in early 2020 to support the nonprofit activities of NCSEA and its Member Organizations. The Purpose of the Foundation is to fund qualifying initiatives and activities that are intended to aid in the advancement of the science and practice of Structural Engineering as well as promote technical development, education, outreach, and engagement within NCSEA’s Member Organizations.
Any NCSEA Member Organization or member(s) of a Member Organization are eligible to submit a grant application. Applications must be submitted to the local Member Organization, reviewed and approved, and then forwarded (via this application) to NCSEA for consideration.
A grant request may be submitted for any program that is consistent with NCSEA’s Mission. Please note: Requests will not be accepted for political contributions or for the reimbursement of lobbying expenses.
A subcommittee of the NCSEA Board of Directors (Treasurer, at-large members and the Executive Director) will serve as the evaluation committee for the grant applications. Once the winning grants are selected by the subcommittee, they must be reviewed and approved by the NCSEA Board of Directors. In addition to the above information, several key factors will be evaluated with every grant application:
- How will the grant request advance the practice of structural engineering or strengthen your MO?
- Is the grant request for MO operations funding (such as website updates, AMS improvements or a new computer)? If yes, the grant application must detail how the project is unique (and not just typical operational expense) and how the MO will communicate successes back to all other MOs to ensure knowledge transfer.
- Are there matching funds from a local Member Organization, or is the grant request serving as the primary funding source for a project?
Grant recipients will be contacted directly by a member of the subcommittee.
