THE OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE
AMERICAN COUNCIL OF ENGINEERING COMPANIES

New ACEC President & CEO

A

s the unanimous choice of the ACEC Search Committee, Executive
Committee and Board of Directors, we are pleased to welcome Linda
Bauer Darr as the Council's new President/CEO succeeding Dave
Raymond. She will officially begin her tenure on Aug. 6.
Darr is a broadly experienced association executive who spent her last four
years as CEO of the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association.
She previously held leadership positions at the American Moving & Storage
Association, American Bus Association and the American Trucking Association.
She also was U.S. deputy assistant secretary of transportation for budget and
programs, and she started her career working for an engineering company.  Darr,
who is a Washington-area native and a University of Maryland graduate, also
completed the Executive Education Program at the Harvard Kennedy School.  An
in-depth interview with ACEC's new President/CEO will be featured in the
September/October edition of Engineering Inc.
Our current issue examines the engineering industry's continued shortage of
seasoned talent and its impact on Member Firms (see page 10). We also cover
the growing use of 3D printing in engineering applications (see page 18) and the
observations of the 2018-2019 ACEC Executive Committee members on the
challenges of new technology (see page 28).
Looking forward to our Fall Conference Oct. 28-31 at the Bellagio in Las
Vegas, we have an exciting lineup of nationally renowned speakers as well as the
industry's best business education programs. You don't want to miss this one!
Because this is the last time that I (Dave Raymond) will share this space to
address you, please know that it has been a great honor and pleasure.
Both of us are highly gratified with the many gains that ACEC has made over
the years-and that the Council will continue to be in strong hands as we look
to the future.
Enjoy the summer!
