How ACE works

ACE groups meet in person 2 or 3 times a year, depending on the group. At least One of the meetings is at a member’s place of business, where a complete, honest critique is given to the owner by the other members and facilitators.

Members are required to sign a strict, legally binding confidentiality agreement.
