I just renewed my membership to the American Copy Editors Society. Here’s why:
- ACES is growing. It has about 1,800 members, and the 2016 national conference drew a record number of attendees.
- ACES is evolving. It includes editors of all kinds, not just those in news organizations. All are welcome.
- ACES is increasing the value of scholarships for students interested in careers in editing.
- ACES is expanding training through regional workshops, including one with a focus on digital skills.
If you’re an editor, I encourage you to become an ACES member. It’s a great community of people who love words and language. Join us!
