ACES National Conference

Since 1997, more than 5,600 participants have taken advantage of the educational and networking opportunities offered by ACES at our three-day national conferences. Topics cover various components of editing — grammar, style, word usage, sentence structure, readability, editing techniques, ethics, working with writers and publishers, working with the web and social media, working with numbers, and more — as well as career and leadership advice and advice on teaching editing.

The 2018 national conference will be at The Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago, April 26-28, 2018.
