Conference update: August 2020

We know many of you and your organizations are needing to make decisions about resources for travel and professional development for the coming year, and wondering about the status of the ACE 2021 conference. The conference committee has met twice so far and reviewed 2020 conference evaluations. We anticipate a June conference, but have not finalized dates, venue or format (in person, virtual, or hybrid). Watch for opportunities for input through your learning communities or other inquiries from the committee in the coming weeks.  Please share your questions and suggestions by emailing ACE, the co-chairs, or ACE president Jennifer Alexander.
