Washington, D.C. – Bonnie Manley, P.E., Director of Construction Codes and Standards for the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), was named as a Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) Fellow at the 2015 Structures Congress on April 25 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. SEI is an institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The SEI Fellow (F.SEI) grade distinguishes members as leaders and mentors in the structural engineering profession.
Manley joined AISI as a regional director in January 2006. She provides significant leadership to steel industry efforts in the areas of seismic and wind design.
Prior to joining AISI, she was a senior structural engineer at the National Fire Protection Association. She also collaborated with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Building Seismic Safety Council, and the National Council of Structural Engineers Association on topics of common concern.
Manley also worked for the Institute for Business & Home Safety and was employed as a structural engineer for AEC Engineering.
“We congratulate Bonnie on this milestone in her career,” said Jay Larson, P.E., F.ASCE, Managing Director, AISI Construction Technical Program. “In the cold-formed steel industry, Bonnie is recognized widely for her industry knowledge and technical expertise, and she is committed to advancing best practices and technologies that ensure safer steel-based solutions for building construction. We are pleased that she was nominated by members of the ASCE 7-16 Subcommittee on Wind Loads and that the SEI Fellow Review Committee has recognized her many contributions to structural engineering.”
