The Association of Canadian Engineering Companies receives award for its education campaign
The Association of Canadian Engineering Companies (ACEC) is the recipient of the 2007 “Associations Make a Better Canada Award” presented by the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE).
The award is in recognition of ACEC’s public affairs and government relations work and, specifically, its campaign to educate and inform public office-holders of the benefits of the InfraGuide “Best Practice“ for Selecting a Professional Consultant.
The principal selection criteria of the award are the high quality of the concept and the effectiveness in the planning and implementation of the initiative.
“ACEC is very proud to be the recipient of this prestigious award,” said president Claude Paul Boivin.
“The use of the InfraGuide “Best Practice” when selecting engineers leads to significant life-cycle savings by encouraging innovation and optimizing quality and sustainability.”
The association officially kicked off the campaign at its national convention in June. The ads are running in select publications.
“We have received many favorable comments on the graphic concept of the four ads that were designed for this campaign,” Boivin said.
“Because of the diversity of engineering, it is challenging to capture the accent in a few images, but I think we have succeeded with our ads and we are delighted that an outside organization has recognized this through the award.”
ACEC, is the national organization that represents private sector consulting engineering firms in Canada, a $13.8 billion-a-year industry that employs 88,500 Canadians.
ACEC member firms are engaged, in some way or another, in nearly every infrastructure project in the country. Canada is the third largest exporter of engineering services in the world.
CSAE is the professional organization for those who manage many of Canada’s most progressive associations.
