The Association of Federal Communications Consulting Engineers (AFCCE) was founded in 1948 as a professional association of communications engineers practicing before the Federal Communications Commission. Engineering for broadcast stations in the AM, FM and TV services, for microwave, cellular radio, PCS, paging systems, cable systems and for satellite facilities are some of the areas in which AFCCE members offer their professional services. Associate membership is offered to technical personnel and to other professionals sharing an interest in communications engineering.
The purpose of the Association is to aid and promote the proper federal administration and regulation of those engineering and technical phases of communications which are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission, to uphold the honor and dignity of engineers before the Federal Communications Commission, and to provide for the mutual improvement and social intercourse of the members of the Association.
In its primary function, the AFCCE monitors the technical policy of the FCC to ensure that the agency’s regulations coincide as closely as possible with sound engineering principles.
Whenever the FCC contemplates technical rule changes, the AFCCE is an influential participant in the rulemaking process, offering its comments and counterproposals for the public record. The AFCCE maintains high standards of professional ethics among its members, providing for their mutual support and professional improvement. A scholarship fund, supported by its members, permits the AFCCE to assist future communications engineers with college tuition.
