About ACEC WI Events

Access to Knowledge: Delivering the education and expertise to support business success. 

Access to training is important. As an approved provider of continuing education programs for engineers in Wisconsin, event participants earn professional development hour (PDH) credits. Our robust line-up of annual programs meets Wisconsin’s professional licensure requirements. These programs are facilitated in Wisconsin by national experts and engineers who are at the forefront of their fields.

ACEC Wisconsin members receive discounted registration rates and access to members-only programming.
