Our very popular SEAoO Annual Conference has a schedule of national speakers on a variety of engineering topics, a Trade Show, an Industry and Education Awards Dinner, and excellent networking.  Thursday will also feature (3) Young Member breakout sessions on diaphragms, soft skills, and younger professional experiences.  These are included with the registration price.

A PDF flyer is available HERE.

Professional Development Hours: The Conference will provide up to 15 PDHs, including 1.25 hours of ethics (2 hours of professional ethics are now required for Ohio's next PE renewal period).  Please note that while these hours are applicable for Ohio, we do not certify these hours for the states that have special requirements (FL and NY, for example).

Associate Members, graduated in last 4 years:  $200 through Sep 6 ($225 after Sep 6)

[Attention non-SEA members: Membership in SEAoO is only $50 per year, so you can save by joining first and getting the member price]

Students: $40 through Sep 6 ($50 after Sep 6) (there will also be a dedicated Students and Young Members track on Thursday)

Can't attend both days?  Split the registration and PDHs with a coworker or friend and each of you can attend one day (one Thursday, one Friday).
