2022 is an exciting year for SEAA. The organization is celebrating its 50th Anniversary, and the Convention and Trade Show will resume to its normal schedule. Join us April 5-8, in Charleston, S.C. to celebrate 50 years of being STEEL STRONG!
The keynote speaker is entrepreneur and former star quarterback for the Washington Redskins, Joe Theismann. Theismann has spent the last 20 years working for ESPN and the NFL Network as an NFL analyst, and is an Emmy award winning analyst.
Next year SEAA celebrates its 50th Anniversary. “As we head into 2022, I’m happy to report that SEAA is growing and remains in as strong a position as ever to support erectors, fabricators and general contractors,” said Pete Gum, Executive Director.
The Ironworker Craft Training Program and our DOL-approved apprenticeship program, remains one of the best benefits for members. Through our craft training program, members can also access training for riggers, signalpersons, and crane operators. Other perks include dozens of training videos, a $1000 discount on your AISC membership, free applicant tracking software, and resources for Fall Safety Stand Downs.
“To help you get the most out of your membership, we continue to offer networking opportunities at regional Meet & Greets, job fairs, new member/first timer receptions, and mentoring programs,” said Gum.

In October, SEAA held its first Convention and Trade Show since 2019. This was the first time back to in-person meetings for many of the 40+ exhibitors and nearly 200 attendees who came to Orlando. Attendees leveraged every minute of their time together to reconnect and network face-to-face with customers and friends.
In 2022, the annual meeting returns to its normal spring schedule. It will be held April 5-8, in Charleston, S.C. This is a special meeting, as it marks the 50th anniversary of the association. Three excursions and a Gala, to be held on the historic USS Yorktown, will make this a convention to remember.
SEAA’s Board of Directors in coordination with the Membership Committee has partnered with CareerPlug, an applicant tracking system, to better assist members with the hiring process.
"No matter the size of your company, hiring is one of the biggest challenges our members face. If you've never used an applicant tracking system, I can tell you from personal experience, that this type of tool helped our company streamline our hiring processes,” said Jack Nix, COO for Shelby Erectors Inc., and Chairman of the Membership Committee.
Through this strategic partnership, every SEAA member will receive a free CareerPlug account that comes with a company branded careers page to showcase available job openings. SEAA members will have access to job templates, a configured hiring process to help evaluate your applicants, and access to a team of hiring experts.
SEAA members will have the option to upgrade the free account to a Premium Subscription, starting at $795/year. The upgraded subscription allows for unlimited job postings to top job boards like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, GoogleJobs, Facebook Jobs, and more. It also provides access to evaluation tools like personality assessments, interview scorecards, access to free one-on-one coaching (within the first 30 days of upgrading), text messaging, and paperless onboarding.
SEAA is excited to offer this exclusive benefit to our members.
SEAA’s Safety & Education Committee is looking for jobsites to film Craft Training videos. The project is part of an initiative to build an archive of videos that can be used by SEAA members to complement existing in-house training and that will coordinate with the SEAA/NCCER curriculum.
Among the topics we are looking to shoot are bar joist/girder projects, welding, deck installation, and multiple lift rigging.
Participants must be willing to have videos and pictures taken on active job sites. Other requirements include:
Companies will receive exposure for volunteering, and are encouraged to prominently display their company logo on all equipment and PPE worn by workers in the videos. For more information, contact Bryan McClure.
