    "Our firm has received more value from CAMEE, the ACEC coalition specifically created to support Mechanical/Electrical Engineering Firms, than any other organization with respect to improved business practices, reduced professional liability, and increased profitability. It’s great to build new relationships with firms with similar disciplines located throughout the country.  The MEP engineering feedback and business tools based on different perspectives and markets has been invaluable." - Joseph P. Harvey, P.E., President, JPHARVEY Engineering Solutions
