To All Member Firm Representatives (RESPONSE REQUIRED by FRIDAY, JULY 15, 2022):
As we start the new ACEC/MD fiscal year, I would like to introduce myself as the incoming ACEC/MD Vice President. I look forward to an exciting year and interacting with each of you to move forward with our collective engineering business interest.
It is also the time of year when we update data for our members and reaffirm their commitment as a valued member. This update allows us to more accurately project dues for the year and set a budget for the upcoming FY23 (July 1, 2022-June 30, 2023) that serves the interest of our membership. While we understand that these are challenging times, please project your FTE employee count for the period commencing July 1, 2022. Your FY23 membership dues will be based on what you report. In turn, this helps assure that your billing statements are accurate and that your firm’s information is up to date. Again, this is all employees, not just engineers. Contact the ACEC/MD office if you have any questions (email@example.com or 410-539-1592).
As a reminder, you will be members of ACEC National and ACEC/MD, and your invoice will reflect dues for each. Those that receive bills directly from ACEC National (also known as DIRECT PAY members) will be responsible for paying ACEC directly. Those that historically have their ACEC National Dues paid through ACEC/MD will continue to be billed by ACEC/MD.
We have previously billed ACEC National and ACEC/MD dues quarterly for some firms. Unfortunately, in past years we have had issues collecting on some commitments. Therefore, we will only be sending out one invoice in July 2021 for the full amount of the dues. If you feel this will create a hardship for your firm, please contact the ACEC/MD office.
From – James Deriu, 2022-23 ACEC/MD Vice President & Membership Chair
