It sets standards of excellence and gives a voice to editors in journalism, government, business, publishing, and beyond through top-notch training, networking, and career opportunities. ACES hosts an annual in-person conference and, since 2022, an annual virtual conference, as well as monthly webinars and an introductory certificate in editing, which it co-hosts with The Poynter Institute, a global leader in journalism.
