Play a vital role in the direction of ACES: The Society for Editing by participating in an ACES committee. Committees and leaders play an integral role in the successful functioning of ACES. It is through committees that much of the work of the organization takes place—from outreach to members to planning educational events to professional development and much more. The board establishes and oversees committees, but it depends on committee leadership and members to brainstorm opportunities and complete vital tasks that help make ACES impactful and valuable for its members. All share a common goal—to perform the highest quality work possible.

The committees are as follows:
