ACEC New York Resume Bank During COVID-19. During these challenging times, ACEC New York has established a RESUME BANK to help match engineers that have been separated from firms with available opportunities among our member firms. Separated engineers from member firms can ask to have their resume included in the bank by sending a PDF of their resume to hannah@acecny.org with one of three listed disciplines (MEP, Civil or Structural) in the header. These resumes will be collected in the appropriate bank without review or evaluation. Member firms seeking to fill openings can send a request for the resumes in the bank to Hannah O'Grady at ACEC New York (hannah@acecny.org). The request should indicate which discipline (MEP, Civil or Structural) is being sought. ACEC New York will NOT read or evaluate any resumes. All communication should be through email. This service will continue as long as deemed appropriate.

Reminder: Update Member Directory Profiles. The end of the fiscal year is approaching, and ACEC New York is working to make sure our records are up to date. Visit your firm's directory listing and make sure all contact info, including principals and employees, are up to date. Main contacts can update profiles via their website logins. Verify that branch addresses are correct, as well. As a reminder, the employee count on member profiles will be used throughout ACEC New York records, including dues calculations. Questions? Contact natasha@acecny.org.
