State Issues

ACEC Ohio is the leading authority that advocates, protects and promotes the engineering business in Ohio. Our top priority is to build working relationships with legislators, state agencies and peer state trade associations to keep key leaders informed about industry issues and pro-business regulations.

 ACEC Ohio is committed to representing the interests of our member firms to improve public policy. Our advocacy efforts include meeting with state legislators at events and often one-on-one meetings along with lobbying on our top priorities. This outreach keeps our concerns at top of mind when state leaders are making decisions affecting the engineering industry.
