ACEC’s role is to foster a business climate in Congress and the VA General Assembly to ensure that the interests of engineering companies are protected. In addition, ACEC holds paramount the primary obligation of engineers to promote the general public's health, safety, and welfare. Advocacy efforts will allow our members’ contributions to the built environment to continue for the public good in Virginia, the country, and worldwide.
ACEC Virginia tracks and identifies bills of interest and works with legislators to include language-friendly engineering industries.
ACEC's Political Action Committee - ACEC/PAC - is the engineering industry's primary political engagement tool at the national level. Supported by engineering professionals from across the country who work for member firms, the sole purpose of ACEC/PAC is to elect candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate who support policies and legislation favorable to the engineering industry.
ACEC Virginia is committed to engineering firms' business interests by providing advocacy efforts that support issues in our industry. As the leader in engineering associations in Virginia, we are the voice of engineering firms to ensure that our members are represented in all legislative efforts.
