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.

Are YOU Built Tough? Consulting Congress Days
Let’s show them what we’re made of in Washington!

We know you’re built tough - tough enough to be part of the conversation, tough enough to show up and do something instead of waiting. Tough enough for ACEC/NC’s Consulting Congress Days (CCD) April 19-20th in Washington D.C. This is your chance to make an impact on decisions that directly affect your business.

You can reap the rewards of a more business-friendly Congress but we need your help to get the results. As we meet and educate our NC Congressional Delegates on these matters, your participation is vital.

We’re organizing a private motor coach, leaving from Raleigh on April 19th, so our members can travel together to D.C. After arriving, we’ll gather for an issues briefing (where you can ask questions about our goals and learn how to make the biggest impact during our visits), followed by a complimentary casual reception. On the 20th, we’ll meet with our Representatives, Senators and their Senior Staff (They come to us!). We’ll head back to Raleigh on the motor coach by 2:00pm. 

Registration Opening Soon!
