Cost of Membership

ACEC’s membership is tripartite, in other words, it includes the local, state and national level. State/National dues are based on Full Time Equivalents (FTEs) a firm employs within the state of California. This is used as measure of the size of the organization and the thus the relative benefit of membership. There is a specific chart used for this purpose. If your firm is a national member in another state, it’s possible that only it will only incur dues at the state level.


By-laws require that a firm join at least one local chapter—there are 22 of them. Each of these chapters has their own dues formula but generally local chapter dues are a fraction of state and national dues.


In order to get an exact quote on dues, our office would need to know the number of FTEs (that include all employees, not just registered engineers) within California, and then the breakdown of FTEs within chapters that the firm wants to join (if there are multiple offices in the state). Most firms with multiple offices join one chapter first and then other chapters later.


The first two years of membership, a firm receives discounted dues as an opportunity to try out membership for some time without committing to full dues. Dues are discounted 2/3 the first year, and 1/3 the second year, with full dues beginning year three of membership.


ACEC California invoices quarterly and a firm can cancel at any time.
