ACEC/PAC and Political Programs

ACEC's Political Action Committee - ACEC/PAC - is the engineering industry's primary tool for political engagement at the national level.  Supported by engineering professionals from across the country who work for member firms, the sole purpose of ACEC/PAC is to elect candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate who support policies and legislation favorable to the engineering industry.

ACEC/PAC is overseen by a committee of PAC Champions made up of engineering firm executives from all the ACEC member organizations and is regulated by the Federal Election Commission (FEC).  ACEC/PAC is currently the largest federal PAC in the design industry, having grown more than 500% in 10 years.  It supports candidates on a bipartisan basis and may give up to $5,000 to a federal candidate per election, and up to $10,000 per candidate for their federal election cycle.  In the last election cycle, ACEC/PAC’s winning percentage was 94%.
