An association is only as strong as the collective voice of the members it represents. Through ACES, schools and students gain a more powerful voice in the political decisions of state leaders and regulators. Equally important, ACES members will have access to the real-time information they need to make informed decisions related to state oversight, school operations, and continued access for students. In addition, through in-person events and virtual webinars and information sessions, ACES can provide a forum for networking and relationship building among school leaders.
The benefits of ACES membership are tailored to the unique needs of schools in each state. All ACES 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. In addition, most of the ACES state associations will host an annual in-person annual meeting, as well as school member visits to legislative offices. Likewise, ACES state associations will work to keep government officials in each state abreast of the positive impact of sector schools in the state and will work with legislative leaders to facilitate in-person visits to their local schools.
Membership dues will vary by state, based primarily upon the level of direct advocacy required on behalf of sector schools in the state. In states where the political climate is particularly threatening, ACES will facilitate sector-led advocacy campaigns to directly engage state legislators and regulators on key topics impacting schools and students. Dues will be based upon the gross tuition revenue of campuses located within the state. In all cases, ACES prioritizes equity in policy and continued access for every student to the choose high quality career education setting of their choice.
Allied companies may join as ACES members for all partnering states.
ACES Allied Membership is available comprehensively for all states as an ACES Allied Premier Member or for individual states based on each company’s selection.
