ACE Women's Network Executive Council

December 30, 1899


​The ACE Women's Network Executive Council supports state networks by serving as liaisons and mentors to state coordinators and providing leadership for developing or strengthening state planning boards.

The Council also advises ACE's Inclusive Excellence Group on issues pertaining to the overall functioning of the ACE Women's Network, nominates women to participate in ACE’s Women’s National and Regional Leadership Forums and serves as a "speakers bureau" for the forums.
