“SEAA is great resource of education, safety and steel industry trends."
Lifetime Members Honored Jim Larson and Richard Tucker were awarded Individual Life Membership status at the 2015 National Convention & Trade Show, a distinction given to someone who is officially retired from active employment and whose company is a member in good standing. Both Larson and Tucker have been associated with SEAA for more than 25 years. “Both of these men have sacrificed numerous hours as volunteers for the association, contributing to its growth and success. We honor them upon their retirement and look forward to benefiting from their wisdom for years to come," said Tom Underhill, Executive Director. Larson recently retired from Phoenix Steel Erectors Inc., Haymarket Va., which he co-founded with his business partner Pete Walker in 2003. Prior to that, he was a long-time employee of L.R. Wilson & Sons Inc., Gambrills, Md. "Jim's involvement with AISC, SJI, SDI, and NISD, as well as the SEAA long-range planning committee, ensures that his legacy will carry us into the future. In his retirement, Jim will continue to act as a consultant to SEAA, as his industry knowledge cannot be replaced,” said Tom Underhill, Executive Director. Tucker was a long-time employee of CMC South Carolina Steel and finished a distinguished career with SteelFab Inc. of South Carolina. He received the William Davis Service Award in 2010 and served on the Board of Directors since 1999. He was also the master of ceremonies for the annual convention for many years. “Richard's common sense approach to dealing with complex situations has assisted the board in many critical decisions over the years,” said Underhill.
