2 ACEC-KY Directory
Consulting engineers are individuals who, because of training in one or more engineering specialties, are licensed
professional engineers in private practice.
They serve private and public clients in ways ranging from brief consultations to complete design and coordination
of a project. They are often the technical liaison between architects, process specialists, contractors, suppliers and
the client.
A consulting engineer’s specialty may be anywhere in the broad spectrum of engineering technology, including the
fields of civil, electrical, structural, mechanical, chemical, metallurgical, geotechnical and highway engineering. A
firm may also concentrate in specific fields such as soil mechanics, sanitation, hydrology or petroleum.
A consulting engineer can provide general consultation, feasibility reports, design, cost estimates, rate studies,
project development, patent assistance and preparation of environmental impact statements.
Locating the best available consulting engineer and negotiating the fairest fee requires research, organization,
evaluation and responsible decision making. Engineering value is obtained when the most qualified firm — engaged
for a fair and equitable cost — develops a design which best serves the client by holding down present and future
costs.
The American Council of Engineering Companies of Kentucky (ACEC-KY)
actively promotes increased quality of engineering services and performance. The American Council of Engineering Companies
of Kentucky is a member of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). ACEC is a national association
comprised of state associations with over 5,700 engineering firms throughout the country. Members of ACEC-KY actively
participate in national and international professional activities. Many ACEC-KY members serve on national committees of
the Council.
All members of the American Council of Engineering Companies of Kentucky are licensed to practice professional
engineering or land surveying under the laws of the state of Kentucky, and many also hold registration in other states.
To qualify for membership in the American Council of Engineering Companies of Kentucky, consulting firms must be
established, owned and managed by licensed professional engineers or land surveyors with no business affiliations that could
compromise professional judgment.
The American Council of Engineering Companies of Kentucky is dedicated to:
• Establishing and maintaining the highest standards of technical performance and professional practice.
• Encouraging continuing professional and technical achievement among all engineers.
• Developing a greater understanding of the practice of consulting engineering among the public, related design
professions, the construction and materials industries and local, state and federal governments.
Performing public services when the services do not conflict with professional obligations.

About Us
2014 - 2015 3
August 19, 2014
Membership in any volunteer organization such as ACEC-KY comes with both opportunity to serve and obligation to be
committed. Entering the 2014-15 member-year, ACEC-KY is comprised of 17 Committees covering the full spectrum of
our engineering profession. The composition of these committees includes participation from most member firms—a true
testament to the strength and quality of our organization.
As I write this, I am reminded of Frank Stasiowski’s 2010 book Impact 2020: 10 Giant Forces Now Colliding to Shake How
We Practice Design in the Future. In it, he prophesizes the death of the medium design firm and foretells ten “earthquakelike”
events shaping our profession. This book portends impacts to our firms but also yields parallels to ACEC-KY.
One of those ten “earthquake-like” events has definitely been felt by our organization—the impact or effect of mergers
and acquisitions within our ranks. The spillover effect for ACEC-KY is lessened membership dues do in part to how our
membership dues are derived.
ACEC-KY remains in a solid financial position and has recovered from the recent spree of mergers with long established
Kentucky firms. This recovery and its sustainability going forward is predicated on growing our membership. A key
challenge we must all remain vigilant of in the year ahead. As this year unfolds, it is our intent to utilize the ACEC-KY
website as the means to disseminate the numerous Committee Reports and various meeting minutes to all members—so
check the website regularly.
Aside from membership dues, the second leading source of our revenue—professional development training—also parallels
strikingly to Frank’s book in his section entitled Geographic Irrelevance. The use of technology and the evolutionary
changes of various design platforms continues to present a strong stream of training opportunities for our members and our
partners in Government.
Thanks to the strong relationships we have with many of our Kentucky government agencies, ACEC-KY continues to
partner, collaborate and excel in how we go about our daily business.
Our organization is healthy, engaged and excited about the challenges the coming year has to offer.
I am humbled to be asked to serve ACEC-KY as President for this coming year. I sincerely look forward to serving with you
and I am sure you will find the results of your participation rewarding.
Sincerely,
Ben T. Quinn, Jr., PE
President

The American Council of Engineer
ing Companies of Kentucky ’ s
Engineering Excellence Awards program
is an annual design competition that
recognizes engineering achievements
that demonstrate the highest degree of
merit and ingenuity. Entries are rated on
the basis of uniqueness and originality;
technical value to the engineering
profession; social and economic
considerations; complexity and how
successfully the project meets the needs,
including time and budget constraints, of
the client. Designs are entered into one of
nine project categories: studies; research
and consulting engineering services;
building support systems; structural systems;
surveying and mapping; environmental,
water and wastewater; water resources;
transportation and special projects.
Participating in the EEA program is a
win-win prospect. If you want to increase
your firm’s visibility and expand your client
base, EEA is an important opportunity. For
a relatively small investment in materials
and time, you can produce a marketing
tool that will augment your business
development efforts and pay for itself one
hundred fold. Every finalist receives local
and national recognition — this year may
be the year for you to enter.
Winners of the ACEC-KY EEA competition
advance to the ACEC competition with
the possibility of additional national
recognition.

and privileges of Members of this Council, except that
they shall have no voting representation as is otherwise
stipulated for Member Firms in Section 2.5.1.

of Directors with a recommendation.
At the time that the Committee sends its recommendation
to the Board of Directors, all Member Firms will be notified
in writing of the identity of the firm applicant which has
been favorably recommended to the Board. The Board of
Directors shall not act on the membership application until
at least two weeks have elapsed from the time the written

2.4.2. Non-Payment of Dues. Any Member Firm which
becomes in arrears in dues by a full calendar quarter shall
be dropped from the membership roster and be placed on
an Inactive List. Such Member Firm shall be informed of
this action in writing and given three months to reinstate
its membership by full payment of all dues owed, before
being removed from the Inactive List. Application for
reinstatement of membership of Member Firms placed on
the Inactive List will not be considered without payment
of all outstanding dues. A Member Firm remaining on the
Inactive List after the three-month period has elapsed
shall be dropped from membership within the Council,
and shall be so advised in writing.
In hardship cases, Member Firms may, prior to being in

period. Upon Board approval, such Member Firms may
be reinstated to membership without payment of dues
for the approved inactive period.
2.4.3. Expulsion. A Member Firm shall be expelled
if it ceases to fulfill the qualifications for membership as
defined in Article 2 herein, or if it neglects or declines to
furnish such information as to its professional conduct or
practices as may be required by the Council to determine
whether or not such qualifications are met. A Member Firm
shall also be expelled from membership if it intentionally
misrepresents such information necessary to establish
eligibility for its membership or the appropriate level of
its annual dues. A Member Firm may be expelled from
membership on the grounds that its conduct or policy is
prejudicial to the interests of the Council.
A Member Firm may not be expelled under the provisions
of the preceding paragraph until after it has had the
opportunity to be heard by the Professional Conduct
Committee as discussed further in Article 7 herein. The
findings and any expulsion recommendation of the
Professional Conduct Committee shall be forwarded in
writing to the Board of Directors and to the Member Firm
concerned. In considering the recommendations of the
Professional Conduct Committee, the Board of Directors
may conduct further deliberations of the complaints
against the Member Firm. Expulsion, if approved by the
Board of Directors, shall require an affirmative majority
vote of the Board members present and voting. The
action of the Board of Directors shall be final, and shall be
communicated in writing to the affected Member Firm.
2.5. FIRM REPRESENTATION
Each Member Firm may designate its representatives.
Requirements shall be as follows:
2.5.1. Representatives shall be principals, as defined in
Article 1 herein. The number of representatives shall not
exceed the index number of the Member Firm for which it is
paying dues. Each Firm Member shall have one vote for each
of its index numbers as provided for in the Bylaws. A Member
Firm with an index number of two or more may have its total
vote cast by one representative.
2.5.2. Most items of business coming before the Council
and requiring voting can be addressed by voice vote. On issues
wherein voice vote responses demonstrate a significant lack
of majority, as ruled by the President and/or requested by
any representative, and as required in Section 3.2. herein, the
voting process will be conducted by means of secret ballots
tabulated by index numbers.
2.5.3. Each Member Firm will designate one of its
representatives as the firm’s Contact Member, to whose
attention the Council shall direct any transmittals for the firm,
and to whom the Council will contact in seeking information
or assistance required in the course of the Council’s business.
2.6 Affiliate Membership
The purpose of an Affiliate Membership is to promote
enhanced communication, cooperation and coordination
between ACEC-KY Member Firms and firms or organizations
providing services and/or products commonly used by ACECKY
Members. Affiliate Membership grants membership into
the American Council of Engineering Companies of Kentucky
only (not the American Council of Engineering Companies).
A. Any organization which provides services and products
commonly used by ACEC-KY Members and supports the goals
of ACEC-KY shall be eligible for Affiliate Membership. Affiliate
Membership shall be limited to organizations that are not
eligible for regular membership within ACEC-KY.
B. An organization desirous of having Affiliate Membership
within ACEC-KY shall submit to ACEC-KY a completed
application form. The designated staff of ACEC-KY shall
review the application and make its recommendation on
said application to the ACEC-KY Board of Directors. The staff
may interview other ACEC-KY members who are familiar with
the applicant to help assure that the character and business
practices of the applicant are consistent with the nature and
disposition of ACEC-KY. If the Board of Directors concurs in
the recommendation of the staff, an invitation of Affiliate
Membership in ACEC-KY shall be issued to the applicant.
C. If for any reason the Board of Directors decides not to
accept an organization seeking Affiliate Membership, the
applicant shall be so informed.
D. Affiliate Membership shall continue only through the last
day of the fiscal year during which Affiliate Membership was
conferred. With guidance from the designated staff, invitations
to renew Affiliate Membership shall be issued at the sole
discretion of the Board of Directors.

Summary of Requirement for Kentucky Engineers
This summary is taken from “201 KAR 18.196”, the state regulation governing the implementation of the CPD
requirements for Professional Engineers in Kentucky.
The requirement begins with those who renew their License – June 2010. (Last name beginning with L thru Z)
During the two (2) calendar years prior to renewal, a PE must complete a total of thirty (30) PDHs (Professional
Development Hours) (One PDH is equal to 50 minutes of instruction/presentation time). If a PE exceeds the 30 PDHs
– you may carry up to 15 PDHs forward to the next renewal.
The following information should be kept in case you are involved in an audit and must demonstrate that you have met
the CPD requirements: “the date of the activity, sponsoring organization, location, activity title, description, presenter’s
name, and PDH units earned”. (FYI – this information is included on any certificate you receive from the Kentucky
Engineering Center – KSPE/ACEC-KY).
What type of CPD experience “qualifies? Any activity “beyond the basic educational requirements. . . directly related
to the professional growth and development of the professional engineer. . . containing technical, ethical, or managerial
subjects”. The regulation goes on and on about the possibilities, including teaching, publishing, in-house seminars, etc,
etc. The bottom line is that you as a PE must determine what is beneficial to you as a professional at this point in your
career. There is no approval or pre-approval process that you need to satisfy.
When you renew your license you will be asked to confirm that you have fulfilled the required 30 PDHs – and that’s it,
unless you are audited. If you are audited you will need to provide the information mentioned above and if there is a
dispute, you will have 180 calendar days to get things straightened out before any action is taken.
