ACEC CFO Council


Senior finance executives at ACEC member firms can join the CFO Council at no charge.

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Council provides a framework for financial thought leaders in the engineering industry to discuss their changing role — from financial management to company strategist.

Designed by and for CFOs and senior finance executives, the CFO Council provides unparalleled opportunities to exchange best practices, network with peers from around the country, and get the insights and ideas to keep your firm successful in these challenging economic times.

As a CFO Council member, you have numerous opportunities to address the critical business issues facing your firm and the industry today—and in the future.

  • Special CFO/CEO/CIO Roundtables at the ACEC Spring Convention and ACEC Fall Conference widen the focus to include enterprise-wide issues.

  • The Council hosts peer-to-peer programs at both the Annual Convention and Fall Conference, with the agendas designed by participating CFOs.

  • The Engineering CFO newsletter features compelling and content-rich articles on business and finance issues.
