2014 FICE President
It has truly been an honor to serve this great organization. I could not have made it through the year without all of the amazing efforts of everyone involved. This includes the staff in Tallahassee, our legal consultants and lobbyists, the volunteers on the FICE Board of Directors and Committees, as well as volunteers in our sister organization, FES. I have grown from this experience, and only hope that FICE is better today than it was last year. Actually, I know it is, because of our new Executive Director, Allen Douglas. He will be the new “Face of Engineering” in Florida, as well as helping us evolve to overcome future organizational demands and economic challenges. We are all very lucky to have Allen at our helm.
Thank you again for allowing me to serve as your President. I encourage everyone to get involved, make a difference, and experience our profession at its finest. (Did I mention we now have an app?)

FICE joins ZweigWhite to produce its annual Salary Survey
FICE is partnering with ZweigWhite again to produce the firms’ annual series of regional salary surveys. ZweigWhite’s 2015 Salary Survey of Northeast and South Atlantic Engineering Firms, 2015 Salary Survey of Central Engineering Firms, and the 2015 Salary Survey of Mountain & Pacific Engineering Firms are the most up to date and comprehensive surveys for engineering firms operating in these regions.
As in previous years, ACEC members participation in the survey is a key broad base of engineering firms nationwide. To encourage participation we are offering special pricing to members: $95 for members who participate and $295 for those who do not participate. This is a great way to support your association and get the information you need at a discount. It makes good sense to participate and save $200. The survey is available in PDF or online. The deadline to participate is
October 24, 2014.
