Advocacy

Legislative Day

The future of engineering is significantly affected by decisions made by elected officials. State and federal laws and regulations have a tremendous impact on your day-to-day operations. ACEC Wisconsin is the voice of the engineering business community in Wisconsin and is working hard every day to pursue the industry’s interests in Madison and Washington, D.C.

Advocacy is one of our top priorities. ACEC Wisconsin continues to work on issues advancing the engineering industry and the quality of life for all Wisconsin residents. We promote legislative proposals that improve the business climate for engineering companies and oppose legislation that would burden the industry or harm the public.

Members play a critical role in achieving the industry’s government affairs agenda. Under the ACEC Wisconsin umbrella, the voice of the engineering profession is amplified.

How to Get Involved

  • Contact your elected officials. You can make an impact by contacting lawmakers to explain how a legislative proposal would affect your company. Watch for ACEC Wisconsin action alerts and participate.
  • Contribute. Contributions help elect candidates who understand the role of engineering companies in their communities. Using the ACEC Wisconsin Conduit, ACEC Wisconsin PAC and the ACEC National PAC is the most effective way to contribute to candidates.
  • Join the Government Affairs Committee. This committee is open to any employee of any member firm or affiliate firm that has an interest in getting involved in public policy.
