The Georgia Alliance for Career Education (GACE) is a subsidiary of the Alliance for Career Education in the States (ACES). All institutions located in the state of Georgia are encouraged to join in support of private career education and state-based advocacy.
GACE members can receive special pricing on Certified Higher Education Professional (CHEP) courses offered through MaxKnowledge. The CHEP certification courses help career education institutions to enhance employee credentials and performance resulting in increased institutional effectiveness and student outcomes. Additionally, nationally certified faculty and staff set participating institutions apart in the career education sector.
GACE members have priority access to all events including professional development offerings, webinars and special events hosted in their areas.
GACE members receive timely updates and regular communications covering all the political, business, and higher education news impacting Georgia schools.
The advocacy work of GACE is tailored to the unique needs of schools in Georgia. All GACE members will receive regular communications related to legislative, regulatory, and political activities important to the sector in the state capital, as well as a complimentary subscription to Career Education Review magazine.
GACE will work to keep government officials in Georgia abreast of the positive impact of proprietary schools in the state and will work with legislative leaders to facilitate in-person visits to their local schools.
Membership dues are reflective primarily upon the level of direct advocacy and calculated based on gross tuition revenue of campuses located within the state.
In times when the political climate is particularly threatening, GACE will facilitate a sector-led advocacy campaign to directly engage state legislators and regulators on key topics impacting schools and students.
GACE is a partner of the Alliance for Career Education in the States which is a subsidiary of Career Education Colleges & Universities (CECU), the national association representing private postsecondary career schools. There is no requirement that members of GACE also be members of CECU; however, schools that are members of both will receive a 10% discount on their GACE membership. Similarly, some schools operate campuses in multiple states. In this case, schools will receive an additional 10% discount on their dues if they are an ACES member in multiple states.
