About the Webinar Series
With the New Year, January 1, 2014, California will be enforcing new building codes, and SEAOC has been busy preparing tools to help members transition to these new codes. Updating of the Structural/Seismic Design Manuals (SSDMs) to the 2012 IBC has just been completed, including expanded example problem coverage. SEAOC will be presenting a series of five webinars, addressing each of the five SSDM volumes.
