AE/PAC is Alabama’s Engineering Industry Political Action Committee, The official statewide PAC representing the unified voice of Engineering. AE/PAC, a bipartisan PAC, supports pro-business, pro-contracting out candidates and elected officials who will fight to improve the business environment for engineering, design and construction firms in Alabama. AE/PAC is administered by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Alabama (ACEC/Alabama).
The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) is the voice of America’s engineering industry. Council members – numbering more than 5,000 firms representing more than 500,000 employees throughout the country – are engaged in a wide range of engineering works that propel the nation’s economy, and enhance and safeguard America’s quality of life. Our member engineering companies are responsible for the design works of America’s infrastructure. The Council’s mission is to contribute to prosperity and welfare and progress in our society.
ACEC’s roots date back to 1909 when a small group of engineers in private practice established the American Institute of Consulting Engineers (AICE), the forerunner of ACEC. Today ACEC is a large federation of 51 state and regional councils representing the great breadth of America’s engineering industry. ACEC member firms employ more than hundreds of thousands of engineers, architects, land surveyors, scientists, and other specialists, responsible for more than $200 billion of private and public works annually. Member firms range in size from a single registered professional engineer to corporations employing thousands of professionals.
In Alabama, our members are engaged with state government and other public and private entities to ensure our public and private infrastructure works meet the highest standards in order to protect and ensure the quality of life for the citizens of our state. Our member professional engineers take seriously their responsibility – not just for the quality of the jobs they work on – but for the safety and well-being of the public at large.
