What’s the next best thing to attending the 2014 NASCC: The Steel Conference in Toronto (March 26-28 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre)? Sitting in the comfort of your office or conference room watching selected streaming sessions online! The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) is offering virtual attendees the opportunity to view their choice of 11 sessions (out of 22 being streamed) – and to receive CEU/PDH credits.

“Streaming sessions proved to be very popular last year and more than 300 people participated,” explained Scott Melnick, vice president at AISC. “It’s a very economical option and gives you a good taste of the sessions at the Conference. Not only do you save on travel and hotel costs, but it only costs $225 for AISC members ($350 for non-members) with each additional viewer from the same company paying only $10. It’s not as good as being at the conference, but it’s the next best thing.”
