The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), a national professional association devoted to finding better ways to protect people and property from the effects of earthquakes, is now accepting applications for membership. In past years, membership in the EERI was possible by nomination only.
Members of EERI receive a newsletter containing news and announcements of meetings and publications as well as guest editorials on topics of special concern. The EERI also sponsors meetings, conferences, and seminars on all aspects of earthquake engineering. By participation on EERI committees, by personal contact with other members, and through EERI liaison with other organizations, EERI members have an opportunity to participate in charting the future course of earthquake engineering practice and research.
