Some organizations are dedicated to basic science and advancing fundamental knowledge. While not typically producing commercial products, they are responsible for discovering and developing the underlying principles and techniques that will benefit our lives and the future for our children.

Technical and Professional Societies

An engineering society assists its members in many ways by publishing news, organizing seminars and technical conferences, and helping members stay in touch with each other. Larger societies might provide resources for independent professionals, such as health benefits and financial planning resources.

Trade associations

A trade association or trade group is an organization of businesses that operate in a specific industry. An association participates in public relations activities such as advertising, education, publishing, lobbying, and political donations, but its focus is collaboration between companies.

In accordance with the ACESA mission, providing a service to the engineering and scientific professional communities will enhance the participants' ability to reach out to other professional members in supporting their organizational events and activities. This to include their meetings, workshops, seminars, conferences, webinars, contact information, etc.
