Start Active Membership Application

Once our office has received your submission fee ($50) and your application with 2 letters of recommendation, your list of credits, a letter of interest, you will be invited to attend a membership interview. There may be a schedule delay, as this is conducted by ACE member volunteers. East coast or international interviews may be done via an internet link. After final approval by the ACE Board of Directors and membership-at-large, you will be inducted as a member.


The entire process can take up to 6 months to complete. The initiation fee for membership is $1,500.00 which may be paid in installments. Ongoing member dues are $400.00 each year thereafter.

Please carefully review the Membership Guidelines before submitting your application.
