What is my SECED membership number?

Your SECED membership is administrated by the ICE. When you became a member of SECED, you should have received an eight-digit membership number. If you were an existing member of the ICE at the time of joining SECED, this number would have been the same as your ICE membership number. If you don't know your membership number, please contact the SECED Secretary (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Do I need to log in to the SECED website?

In general, the answer to this question is "no". At the moment the only part of the website that requires a log-in is the Eurocode 8 forum (if you wish to create a new post in the forum, or reply to an existing post). All other resources and webpages are freely available to the public. If you wish to create an account on the website with the intent of using the Eurocode 8 forum, please contact the Website Administrator.

How do I change my contact details?

If you wish to change your contact details (or any other details associated with your SECED membership), you have two options: (1) log in to MyICE with your email address and password and go to My Profile; (2) contact the SECED Secretary (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) quoting your surname and membership number. The first option is preferred. You should only use the second option if for some reason you are unable to to use the first.

I have not received the SECED Newsletter for a while – what should I do?

The SECED Newsletter is no longer published in hard copy. All future issues will be published in electronic format only. A PDF attachment or a link to a download site will be sent via email to all members when a new issue is published. If you previously opted out of emails from the ICE, the email will not have been sent to you. In that event, please contact the Website Administrator, the SECED Secretary or the Newsletter Editor, and we will be happy to send you a copy of the Newsletter. Moreover, we recommend that you opt in to emails from SECED (see next FAQ).

I am not receiving any email notifications from SECED – what should I do?

Your SECED membership is administrated by the ICE, and all email notifications are handled by the ICE. You may have opted out of emails from the ICE (via MyICE or when you joined SECED), in which case the notification system will respect your preferences and not send any emails to your email address. If you wish to receive email notifications from SECED, please contact the SECED Secretary (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), stating your consent to receive emails from SECED.

I do not have a MyICE account – what should I do?

In the first instance, if you know your SECED membership number, try to register for a MyICE account. The form will ask for your ICE membership number, which is the same as your SECED membership number. If you do not know your membership number, please contact the SECED Secretary (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with your surname and date of birth. A reply will be sent as soon as possible with your membership number.

How do I change my membership type?

To change your membership type (e.g. from Student to Individual or from Individual to Retired), please contact the SECED Secretary (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) quoting your surname and membership number.

Are evening meetings broadcast online and, if they are, what should I do to join the broadcast?

Most of our evening meetings are broadcast online. Usually we send a link via email a few days before the evening meeting. We also publicise the link within the advert in the Events section of the website (however, the link may not appear in the advert until the day before the meeting). In many cases you can also find the event in ICE's Event Center. Some of our evening meetings are not broadcast if, for example, the host venue does not have the required facilities for broadcasting.
