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 an opportunity to carry out this function. The 1979 Annual Technical Session was held on April 24 and 25 at The William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Eighty-five persons attended the Session and twenty-seven papers were delivered. A panel discussion on "Stability of Space Frame Structures" was held in the evening of April 24, 1979. The panelists were R. S. Loomis, D. T. Wright, and E. P. Becker. The moderator was J. L. Durkee. In conjunction with the Technical Session, an Annual Business Meeting was held for the purpose of electing new officers and members, and discuss financial and other business matters. Summaries of the technical papers, the panel discussion and minutes of the business meeting are recorded in the following pages. The attendance list is also included.
