Dear Colleague: 

Industry and user partners are integral to MCEER's success. From the outset, they provide a vital spark, contributing to the thought processes that ignite the Center's research thrusts. Throughout our research, their insight and input helps us to monitor and maintain our direction to ensure user-friendly outcomes that are both economically feasible and socially and politically acceptable. In the end these partners play a pivotal role as agents of knowledge and technology transfer, helping to usher solutions and technologies from research laboratory to real-world practice. 

With fond respect and immense gratitude, here we profile a number of these generous and critical contributors ­ Charter Members of MCEER's Strategic Partnerships Network. In addition to their involvement noted above, these partners also make financial contributions to further MCEER's strategic research and mutually beneficial endeavors. Partners are profiled and listed according to their contribution level as Flagship Partners, Premier Partners, and Partners. Make no mistake however, each is vital to MCEER's success. That's why we refer to them as partners. 

With their continued support and involvement, our fires burn bright as we continue to develop solutions to bring greater stability to our built environment and enhanced resilience to communities nationwide, in times of earthquakes and other disasters. We thank them for their many contributions. We applaud their every effort. And we hope that you enjoy learning a little bit more about them here and through their respective web sites. 

Cheers, 

George C. Lee
