ACE Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary
ACE has planned several activities to commemorate its 25th Anniversary during 2019.  Affiliates, mentors, and students across the country will be able to participate in different ways.
The main celebration is a festive banquet on Tuesday, May 14, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center on the Potomac River, just outside the heart of Washington, DC.  
 
The finals of the CIRT National Design and Construction Competition will occur in the afternoon before the banquet. ACE's biennial All Affiliates Conference will follow the next day and a half, May 15-16.  Event details and registration can be read here. The 2019 Outstanding Mentors and winners of the CMiC -- Allen Berg Memorial Scholarship will be presented at the banquet.
 
Several companies have stepped up as initial Silver Anniversary sponsors – Platinum Level: CMiC; Silver Level: APi Group,  Engineering News-Record, Gilbane Building Company, STV, Terracon, and Turner Construction Company.   ACE welcomes additional sponsors.
 
Affiliates, students, and mentors are all invited to participate in other anniversary activities, including a photo competition  and a call for affiliates to nominate ACE Rock Stars and submit notable achievements. Social media campaigns will run throughout the year incorporating submissions for these two activities.
 
A special commemorative edition of the ACE Yearbook will culminate anniversary celebrations late this summer.

New Video Highlights ACE Milestones
To mark its Silver Anniversary, ACE has created a 2½-minute video showcasing ACE’s development over the past 25 years. The musical accompaniment is a specially commissioned work titled “The ACE March” written and performed by the XPresidents.
