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 2020 national conference will be at Hilton Salt Lake City Center Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah, April 30-May 2, 2020.

Editing and Digital Boot Camps

ACES has a new set of boot camps lined up for 2020 -- some full-day, some half-day, and some pairings of half-day boot camps that can be taken individually or both in the same day. 

It begins with a full-day session on Feb. 27, with Fundamentals in Editing.
