Protection Engineering Consultants, LLC (PEC) is proud to announce that one of our Principals, Dr. Eric Sammarco, has been selected to serve as President of the Austin, TX Chapter of the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI).

Eric is a founding board member of the Austin, TX Chapter of SEI. He held the position of Communications Director for the last seven (7) years, during which time he was a major influencer in chapter growth and engagement of the local structural engineering profession. Among other things, Eric managed SEI content development for the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Austin Branch monthly newsletter, advertised and coordinated graphical content for the landmark annual Structural Engineering Talks (SET) event, and assisted with recruiting of first-class industry and academic speakers for the chapter’s bi-monthly Professional Meetings. In 2020, Eric served as keynote speaker for the annual Austin ASCE-SEI Joint Luncheon event with a presentation on highway bridge security and its role in enhancing resiliency.

Eric is truly honored to be given the opportunity to serve as SEI Chapter President, and he is committed to supporting the local structural engineering community as we continue to navigate these challenging and uncertain times.

A big congrats, Eric, from your family at PEC!
