SEAA Cancels April National Convention

March 18, 2020 - In light of ongoing developments surrounding COVID-19, its impact on public health, and subsequent restrictions on corporate travel, the board of directors of the Steel Erectors Association of America (SEAA) has decided to cancel its convention and trade show, previously scheduled for April 1-3 in Charleston, South Carolina.

​SEAA will announce the winners of its Project of the Year competition and Safety & Training Awards in April, but is planning an in-person presentation of these awards for a future date. In addition, the association is considering delivering some of the education sessions planned for the convention in alternative ways. Look for more information in the coming weeks.

“We are in the process of contacting all attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, and speakers regarding registration refunds,” said Tom Underhill, executive director of SEAA. “And we look forward to meeting in person this fall for the 21st Annual Education Golf Tournament.”

Person of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Awards will be presented prior to the Oct. 9 golf tournament in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

In 2021, SEAA will hold its convention and trade show April 28-30, 2021, at Doubletree by Hilton at Entrance to Universal Orlando in Florida, and has rescheduled the annual meeting for Charleston, South Carolina, in 2022.
