On Tuesday, May 14, 2013, ACEC/MA, BSCES, and MALSCE members gathered at the Massachusetts State House for our Annual Engineers and Land Surveyors Day at the State House along with leaders from other engineering and design-related associations.  These organizations co-sponsored the day:

  • American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA)
  • Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section/ASCE (BSCES)
  • Massachusetts Association of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers (MALSCE)
  • And several other groups

We arranged for meetings with our members’ Massachusetts State Representatives and State Senators based on where our members live and vote.  Our advocacy focused generally on these issues:

  • Transportation Infrastructue Funding
  • Water Infrastructure Fundin
  • Good Samaritan Law for Design Professional and Contractors
  • Maximizing Private Sector Innovation (support for Contracting Out: Design Work Done By Private Sector Engineering Firms)
