    The SEAOSC Legislative Action Committee meets virtually at 4:30 pm on the fourth week of every month. Last fiscal year our activities included updating our Legislative Platform, developing a Net Zero Carbon policy position, and providing input on several state legislation and local policy proposals. The topics we’ve been discussing recently include state legislation such as the Water and Wildfire Resiliency Act, Alquist-Priolo Earthquake Fault Zoning Act, Seismic retrofitting: soft story multifamily housing, Hospitals: seismic safety compliance, and GHG emissions: building materials: embodied carbon trading system. Additionally, we’re discussing an L.A. Council motion regarding an Embodied carbon code. If you are interested in being up to date and having an impact on the latest local, state, and national policy and legislation efforts affecting our profession and the built environment, join the committee and share your expertise and experience so we may make a greater impact together!

    Our mission is to improve concrete construction projects, whether new or existing. We accomplish this by finding and promoting the best information available, whether it is better project specifications, materials, best practices, quality control, code updates, etc.

    The concrete committee was formed, staffed, and began regular meetings in early 2020. Committee members come from all aspects of the industry – engineers, contractors, material suppliers, government agencies, etc.

    The topics in 2020-2022 have included a broad spectrum of advanced, state of the art industry information including concrete mix design, best practices for repair and protection, state of the art testing by maturity meters, teaming up with other industry associations like ACI and NRMCA, promoting safer buildings through the City of LA non-ductile concrete retrofit program, best practices for post tension and precast concrete structures. After the presentation, there is a very spirited Q & A session and sometimes we just have an open discussion meeting.

    The committee meets last Thursday of every month at 1:30pm, feel free to join us! For more information email
