Welcome to the American Council of Engineering Consultants of Florida (ACEC-FL)

Message From the President

Peter M. Moore, PE, LEED AP
2018 ACEC-FL President

Happy Valentine's Day! While it may not seem natural to relate the romantic holiday to engineering, there are at least two reasons to celebrate for engineers. The first reason is that this upcoming weekend is the beginning of Engineer's Week. I hope that every person remembers the love they have for this amazing profession and reminds the rest of the world all week how amazing the world is because of engineering. The second reason to celebrate is because for nearly every engineer, and most particularly for business owners, the pursuit of our career is a family effort. Many long nights working and away from home require a strong family band and let's not forget to celebrate those that make our houses into homes.

Once you are done celebrating, I hope you can join us at our 2018 Winter Water Seminar. This amazing event is put on in association with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection which provides for great chances for collaboration between engineers, regulators and policy makers. On-line Registration is only open until February 19th, so please sign up right away at www.fleng.org/WWS2018.

We had great attendance at the annual FES Legislative Days event with a number of ACEC-FL leaders in attendance. And now the Legislative Session is in full swing, with committee hearings winding down and bills ready for votes on the floor. This takes some of the uncertainty out of the equation, but also reminds us of the need to be ever more vigilant for unfriendly bill amendments that can effectively serve as a bill impactful to our profession written in the margins of a completely unrelated piece of legislation. Our team is Tallahassee is on red alert checking the updates morning, noon and night to sniff out those potential problems. Be ready to call, write or visit Tallahassee if they need support.
