Through a combination of strategic focus, improved communication, and no shortage of steady leadership by our Executive Committee, ACEC rose to the challenge.

Today, we find ourselves in the waning days of the pandemic. The rapid pace of vaccinations has brought us closer to a sense of normalcy. Organizationally, one thing is clear: we emerge from the pandemic united. We see ACEC at its best. We are now more connected as a federation. Engineering is increasingly viewed as an essential business resource through the work of the ACEC Research Institute. And we find our industry well-positioned to be heard in the ongoing infrastructure debate in Washington.

Over the past year, ACEC moved to serve its members and reposition itself in a changing world. We released groundbreaking research to profile our industry and measure its vast contribution to the economy. We offered education sessions and resources for firm leaders to manage the remote workplace and take care of their people. We held two virtual conventions and Engineering Excellence Awards galas. We met the changing policy environment with increased virtual advocacy and outreach, and despite unprecedented fundraising challenges, ACEC/PAC met its $1 million goal and nearly broke its annual record.

The best days are ahead for ACEC. We weathered the storm and emerged stronger for it. As we enter the last half of the year, we are continuing to invest in the future with strategic investments in new staff, new office space, and a new townhouse just steps from the U.S. Capitol that will become a center of advocacy for our industry.

In the following pages, we invite you to learn more about what we accomplished over the past year, and we hope that you will agree that it has never been more necessary or more beneficial to be a member of ACEC.
