Partnering with Public Agencies
ACEC/MA partners with public agencies to streamline and improve project delivery and improve communication between the public agencies and the engineering and land surveying business community.
ACEC/MA leaders, appointed by the ACEC/MA Client Sector Committees and Board Liaison, in consultation with the ACEC/MA ExCom, represent our engineering and design industry in the public agency partnering meetings.
To participate in public agency partnering or to lead the work as a co-chair of one of the agency committees, starting in August 2022 for the next two years, review the volunteer position descriptions for:
Partnering Committee Co-Chairs: https://files.engineers.org/file/14-Job-Description-For-Partnering-Committee-Co-Chairs-C0B7.pdf
Partnering Committee Member: https://files.engineers.org/file/15-Job-Description-For-Partnering-Committee-Members.pdf
Then, if you can meet the requirements for these voluntary positions, sign up by 7/21/22, no more than 1 person per firm per committee: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ACECMA-PartneringFY23
No more than 1 person per ACEC/MA Member Firm will be appointed to a particular public agency partnering committee. If you want someone else from your firm to be on another committee, make sure they sign up.
Firms must be up to date on FY2023 ACEC/MA Membership Dues to have someone serve on a committee for FY2023. Dues invoices were mailed and emailed to the Firm Representative in early July.
On the Survey Monkey Link above, sign up to be considered for Partnering Committee service on one of these public agency committees:
-- DCR: MA Department of Conservation and Recreation
-- DCAMM: MA Division of Capital Asset Maintenance and Management
-- DEP: MA Department of Environmental Protection
-- MassDOT Highway: Massachusetts Department of Transportation, Highway Division
-- MassDOT OTP: Planning
-- MBTA: Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority
-- Massport: Massachusetts Port Authority
-- MWRA: Massachusetts Water Resources Authority
-- RTAC: Regional Transportation Advisory Council of the Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization (RTAC of MPO) - 1 ACEC/MA seat, 1 alternate. This is not a partnering committee, but an opportunity to represent ACEC/MA.
Important: Only one person per ACEC/MA Member Firm will be appointed to a particular public agency partnering committee. ACEC/MA may call upon other firm leaders for input on particular issues, but please coordinate with your team, so that only 1 person from your firm signs up for a particular public agency partnering committee and does not sign up for another public agency partnering committee.
Example: You can have 1 person sign up for DCR and another person sign up for MBTA, but they have to be different people.
Please also note: under the current City of Boston Lobbying Ordinance, people attending partnering meetings with the City of Boston may be required to register as city lobbyists under certain conditions. People who serve on this committee may serve on 1 other partnering committee.
Contact Abbie Goodman if you have questions.

Important: You must use the account, including the username and password, of the individual you wish to register.
