The American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina (ACEC/NC)
Who We Are
Nationally, ACEC’s roots date back to 1909 when a loosely-organized group of engineers in private practice established the American Institute of Consulting Engineers (AICE), the forerunner of ACEC. Now ACEC is a federation of 50 state and regional councils representing the great breadth of America’s engineering industry. Read more...
What We do
ACEC/NC is the sole organization in North Carolina that represents the business interests of the engineering industry in our state. ACEC/NC also provides legislative advocacy for member companies and strives to build relationships between the private and public sectors of the engineering industry.
Why We Do It
ACEC/NC's council members – almost 200 firms throughout the state – are engaged in a wide range of engineering projects that propel the economy and enhance and safeguard our state’s quality of life. These projects allow our citizens to drink clean water, enjoy a healthy life, take advantage of new technologies, and travel safely and efficiently.
