The Younger Members Committee Presents. Founded in , EERI's mission is to reduce earthquake risk by 1 advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering, 2 improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political, and cultural environment, and 3 advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the harmful effects of earthquakes. EERI, It's already been a year and half since I began my role as Executive Director.
The conference exceeded our expectations in attendance, quality of technical presentations, and media impact. Thank you all. EERI, , by proactively influencing public policy. Three pieces of legislation are being followed by the PPA and are officially supported by EERI: one at the federal level and two precedent setting California bills that are likely to influence future legislation in states across the nation.
This legislation has also inspired members of the PPA committee to shape new policy statements and develop action plans to see them through. All EERI members are welcome to join this committee and actively participate.
Looking ahead, my next task is finalizing our budget for the Board to review during their September meeting. This special time of year provides great opportunities for me to work together with committee and program chairs, staff, and the Board to plan for another year of activity and impact. Ideas and opportunities abound and I am thrilled to help make it possible by allocating our resources to where we need it most.
By your membership, you play an important role in making action possible, and through your involvement in EERI activities you can contribute your expertise to our joint goal of reducing earthquake risk. Thus, as renewal time for approaches, please use your membership as an opportunity to show your support for another bright year ahead.

With his vast breadth of knowledge in many seismological topics and strong understanding of the issues surrounding earthquake risk reduction, David should be a great asset to EERI in this new role.
He earned his Ph. Previously at Caltech, and now at the Colorado School of Mines, Wald has advised scores of post-doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate student research projects. His own scientific interests include a wide variety of earthquake applications including: real-time monitoring, source rupture processes, analysis of ground motion hazards and site effects, macroseismology, modeling earthquake-induced ground failure, citizen-seismology, and estimating economic and human losses.
With his high standard of dedication and care, Jon will be helping to facilitate a smooth transition over the next several months. Download the Guide For a quick intro, watch the videos in English or Spanish. The guide addresses the needs of small-scale contractors, technicians, government staff, architects as well as non-governmental organizations involved in post-disaster reconstruction. The guide has been written with users with various professional backgrounds in mind, including a workforce with little formal training.
As a consequence, this guide not only shows the practical detailing of confined masonry construction, but also offers a wealth of basic information on good construction practices in general. As confined masonry is a construction system that has been developed by practitioners in various countries in parallel, there is a lack of uniform rules on how it should be implemented correctly. In the Confined Masonry Network decided to tackle this issue by compiling a set of common rules from the various existing codes and guidelines on confined masonry and use them to develop a uniform set of guidelines.
For more information about confined masonry and the confined masonry network, please visit the EERI Confined Masonry webpage. But an even bigger victory is possible: keeping those structures operational. This outcome could become more likely with improved standards and codes for the construction of residential and commercial buildings, according to a new report recently delivered to the U.
In , Congress tasked NIST to define what it would take to achieve immediate occupancy performance codes and standards for all buildings in all types of natural hazards, specifically in terms of fundamental research needs, possible technological applications based on that research and key strategies that could be used to implement any resulting regulations. The publication identifies a large portfolio of research and implementation activities that target enhanced performance objectives for residential and commercial buildings.
The facility, headquartered at the University of Washington, has a mission to provide investigators with equipment, software, and support services needed to collect, process, and analyze perishable data from natural hazard events. The facility is directed by Joe Wartman M. The RAPID offers an extensive equipment portfolio for research in natural hazards, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis and tornados. The equipment is available for the engineering, geoscience and social science communities.
The RAPID aims to accommodate all requests, so if you are interested in using our equipment we encourage you to contact us. Read the press release. For more information please visit the conference website.
