Administrators' Conference on Education (ACE)

ACE Conference. Save the date, July 27-28, Isleta Resort and Conference Center


At the 2017 Administrator’s Conference on Education (ACE) we are going to be “Breaking Down Barriers…Building the Best.”  

This annual event for school and district based administrators is a time for APS leaders to gather together to begin a new school year by sharing ideas, strategizing to improve student success, planning for the upcoming school year, networking, and most importantly inspiring each other to continue to do the hard work of education. 

ACE dates back more than five decades and provides professional development sessions, motivational speakers, vendor displays, social events, and much more! 

Each year, a dedicated committee of school and district administrators are responsible for coordinating the annual conference. Members coordinate the venue, schedule, call for presenters, and to work with the community to provide sponsorship in order to finance the event. 

More than 400 APS administrators participated in the 2016 Administrators Conference on Education held at the Isleta Resort and Conference Center!

Attendance is encouraged at the 2017 conference, again held at Isleta Resort and Conference Center July 27-28. 

Join us as we continue working to build the best!
