In order for you to gain the most out of your membership, we think it is important for you to be involved in AACE. That is why we offer a variety of opportunities for members to get active in the Association – for collaboration, networking, and leadership experience.
Welcome to AACE Communities, your private online community where you can connect with thousands of your peers to seek advice, ask questions, offer expertise, find tools and documents, and build a support system. See what your community can do for you.

The Chairs and Co-Chairs of the technical subcommittees are approved by the Technical Board and they report directly to the Technical Subcommittee Division Director, who is a member of the Technical Board. There are no additional charges for your participation in AACE’s technical subcommittees.

AACE offers its members a number of additional volunteer opportunities depending on your expertise and skills. Some volunteer opportunities are on the micro-volunteer level which require smaller amounts of time and effort while others are roles that required more from the member. You can help shape the profession through your involvement in AACE - and gain professional development and expertise as you grow with us.
