About ACEC of Idaho

Welcome to the American Council of Engineering Companies of Idaho (ACEC Idaho). We are the voice of Idaho’s engineering companies.

Founded in 1956, ACEC Idaho is the only Idaho-wide organization devoted exclusively to the business and advocacy interests of engineering companies. Our members are engaged in a wide variety of engineering works to propel the states economy, and enhance and safeguard Idaho’s quality of life. We boast a membership of 47 firms and 2 affiliate firms throughout the state. ACEC Idaho is a highly focused group that advocates, educates, lobbies, networks, provides scholarships for Idaho engineering students, and awards and recognizes outstanding engineering efforts of its member companies. ACEC Idaho is affiliated with the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) a national federation of 51 state and regional organizations founded in 1909.
