ACE on Capitol Hill

Through virtual and in-person meetings with members of the U.S. Congress and their staffs, ACE educates those on Capitol Hill about issues that matter to ACE and our certified professionals. ACE is a regular presence on Capitol Hill at legislative briefings and hearings, "lobby days" focused on specific legislative issues, and even VIP events.

ACE in the Field

While advocating for our Certified Professionals, ACE educates the community and other physical activity focused organizations on the roles of exercise professionals. ACE works to open doors that will create new opportunities for exercise professionals and health coaches by regularly presenting at national and state conferences, leading and contributing to prominent national coalitions, and positioning our Certified Professionals to be leaders in their communities.
