James F. Thompson, PE, LEED AP
2014 FICE President
Not again. The holiday season has once again descended upon us. It’s that time of the year when the work slows down and extracurricular activities barely fit into our calendar. Please make time to participate in your local professional holiday parties. These are always a great way to support your local FES Chapter, as well as mingle with other professionals in a relaxed, fun setting. Most events also have toy drives, so bring a contribution.

ACEC Value Proposition
FICE Value Proposition Summary
All winners will be honored at the FES/FICE Annual Summer Conference and Exposition. All applications are due before April 30, 2014 to FICE Headquarters. Please contact Debbie Hall, email@example.com with questions.
FICE is going from “statewide” to “grassroots” by having regional meetings. The goal of these regional meetings is to assist with resolving local issues facing engineering firms, provide forums for local government contracting opportunities, and promote local networking opportunities.

Do you have a Voice in Congress?
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. Each state is represented by PAC Champions to help meet its state's annual PAC goal.
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. ACEC certainly is interested in your support of this critical political program, but federal law first requires ACEC/PAC to seek your approval before soliciting you on behalf of ACEC/PAC. If your firm as given prior approval, you can make a contribution online through the Contribution Center. If it has not, please update your firm’s approval status online by clicking here.
