Lori has found ACE to be an invaluable resource. “Having the ability to network and gain knowledge and inspiration from my colleagues across the country has helped me become better at what I do. As the Learning Community Director-Elect, my goal would be to enhance ACE’s professional development opportunities through the learning communities and to strengthen the learning community network. It is important that we continue to enhance our members’ experiences and build on our strengths.”
