2022 Committee Update

Joining an ACEC Ohio committee is a good way to build a network with peers while also experiencing professional growth. Committees meet quarterly with in-person and virtual meetings.

ACEC Ohio is recognized as a welcoming organization where all members are included, involved, and can achieve their full potential. We are looking to improve the diversity of ACEC Ohio with our committee volunteers including gender, ethnicity, size, location, and areas of practice.

If you know someone who would be a good fit for one of our committees, please let us know. We'd love to have your recommendations for new volunteers!

Below are highlights from each committee.

  • Communication— The Communication Committee met in September. We strategized use of the ACEC National Research Institute studies on Economic Contribution and Industry and supported ACEC with DEI and PAC efforts and goals.
