How to join

Membership of ACES is open to senior professionals. There is no bar on the number of members any organisation may have. While city, district and rural authorities typically have one ACES member, larger organisations such as the metropolitan and London authorities often have 2 or 3 members.

The easiest way to join is through your local branch.  You will become a member of that branch, and the local fee is typically around £30. You will also join the national organisation and the annual membership fee is currently £125 for the main member of an organisation and £80 for additional members. This is excellent value for money giving you access to an established and active network of practitioners working in all sectors of public property.

The ACES membership application form can be downloaded HERE.
