How to Join ACEC

ACEC membership is available through one of the 52 state and regional councils, called Member Organizations, which provide additional benefits at the local level. Dues vary with the size of your firm and with each Member Organization. Membership eligibility requirements may also vary.

Because of the wealth of information and networking, many non-engineering companies join ACEC each year. If your non-engineering firm is interested in joining ACEC, you should examine the Affiliate ACEC Membership requirements.

Member Seal

Because the ACEC logo is nationally associated with excellence, integrity and quality, members use it on their business literature. Many ACEC members report that, in their clients’ eyes, membership in ACEC offers an advantage over non-members. The seal may be used on websites, letterhead, business cards and any other communications where a demonstrated alliance with excellence can be an advantage. Remember, your firm should be a member in the state in which you intend to use the seal. Click here to review the rules on use of the seal.
