Welcome to ACE

Experience Renewal!
Experience New Orleans!
Experience ACE!

Registration is now open for the ACE 2017 Conference: Renewal in New Orleans. Sign up now, and prepare to review, refresh, refine, re-purpose and re-energize. With dynamic keynote speakers, more than 50 breakout sessions, and engaging tours, the conference will renew your spirt, your skill-set, and your professional connections.

Visit the conference website for details and to register. Accommodations are in the historic Hotel Monteleone located in the famed French Quarter. Explore some of the world’s best food and music, just steps from the hotel.

Whatever you do, don’t plan to leave early! We’ve got a great agenda, with sessions right up until the conference closes mid-day on Friday, June 16 (which gives you a wonderful excuse to stay and explore the city during a weekend “on your own,” if you desire).

All of this, for a registration fee of just $475 (member rate), thanks to our generous conference sponsors.
