About the Association
The Structural Engineers Association of Texas (SEAoT), the largest and most active Association of registered structural engineers and allied professionals in Texas, is a non-profit organization founded in 1983 for the benefit of the structural engineering community, including structural engineers, university faculty members, students, and associates involved in the design, fabrication and construction of structures.

Chapters Across Texas
The Association has seven active chapters - Austin, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston/Gulf Coast, Dallas and San Antonio. Chapters hold regular meetings at which topics of professional interest are presented and discussed. In addition, the Association holds an annual two-day Conference in the Fall. SEAoT members and other structural engineers are welcome at these meetings.

Membership
Membership offers numerous benefits to professional structural engineers, as well as the associated engineering professions, engineering companies, contractors, university professors, and engineering students. Professional presentations, technical publications, forums, conferences, advisory meetings with the State Board of Registered Professional Engineers, and personal interaction keeps SEAoT members abreast of professional developments, new technology, legislative issues, changes in code standards and much more.

Meeting Licencing Renewal Requirements
SEAoT can really help you meet the Texas Board of Professional Engineers' license renewal requirements under which PEs are required to accumulate 15 hours of professional development hours
(PDHs). As a SEAoT member you will have ample opportunity to meet these requirements.If you are not yet a member of SEAoT, please consider joining. If you would like to be added to our electronic database, please click here.

The State Board, headquartered in Austin, meets quarterly and coordinates the Association's activities. The board consists of elected members and representatives from each Chapter.
