2007 ACEC/PAC Honor roll ACEC/PAC Completes Banner Year $ P AC A s the national election campaign and state races heat up, record ACEC/PAC fundraising has positioned ACEC to weigh in on political issues likely to affect the engineering industry. Propelled by a robust year-end finish, ACEC/PAC raised more than $550,000 in 2007, eclipsing the previous record of $440,000 set in 2006. Another record was achieved when 33 states reached their PAC fundraising goals, up from 27 in 2006. “ACEC’s political program really caught fire in 2007,” said ACEC Chairman “Mac” MacMurray, “which has us well positioned to becoming a million-dollar PAC for the first time in the Council’s history.” Said ACEC President Dave Raymond: “We’re achieving this success because more ACEC members than ever before are stepping up to support our political program,” adding that “these fundraising totals send a strong message that our industry is playing to win.” ACEC/PAC Champions already are actively raising money for 2008, setting the stage for a record election-cycle fundraising total projected to exceed $1 million. 36 ENGINEERING INC.
