One of the purposes of the Council is to maintain a forum where problems related to the design and behavior of columns and other compression elements in metal structures can be presented for evaluation and discussion. The Annual Technical Session provides opportunity to carry out this function. The 1971 Annual Technical Session was held on May 25 and 26 at the Pick-Rosseve1t Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Seventy-seven persons attended the Session and twenty-two papers were delivered. A panel discussion on "Fire Effects on Structural Stability" was held in the evening of May 25. In conjunction with the Technical Session, an Annual Business Meeting was held for the purpose of electing new officers and members, and to discuss financial and other business matters. Abstracts of the technical papers, a transcript of the panel discussion, and minutes of the business meeting are recorded in the following pages. The attendance list is also included.
