2015 FICE President
July 2015 FICE Update
As we prepare for our annual conference, we should take a moment to reflect on the engineering profession and our contributions to society. Our contributions are everywhere; the power supplied to our homes and offices; the roads we drive on every day; the bridges we cross; the airports through which we travel; the schools our children attend; the hospitals we visit if needed; our sports arenas; our ports and coastal environment; and our excellent water supply system and clean air. Many in society take all of this for granted and do not understand the depth of technical expertise that is required of engineers to design the infrastructure that provides us all with a high standard of living. Let's get the message out. These are all designed by Professional Engineers!

ACEC/PAC is the primary weapon in our industry's political arsenal to help elect candidates to office who support pro-business, pro-engineering positions. ACEC/PAC is bipartisan and operates out in the open in full compliance with the Federal Election Campaign Act and applicable state laws. Supporting political programs like ACEC/PAC is the best thing we can do to make sure engineering firms have a voice at the table when key decisions are made affecting our future.
