The Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES) is the premier organization dedicated to quality education and supervision of counselors in all work settings. ACES members are counselors, supervisors, graduate students, and faculty members who strive to improve the education and supervision of counselors in training and in practice. ACES and the regional associations host conferences to highlight research and best practices in supervision and in the training of counselors.

ACES publishes a quarterly journal, Counselor Education and Supervision, that presents current issues, relevant research, proven practices, ethical standards and conversations in counselor training and supervision. ACES members have been and continue to be trailblazers in terms of the competencies for supervision, counselor training, research, multicultural competence, and advocacy. Many of the leaders of the counseling profession are members of ACES, and there are always opportunities to become involved in leadership through task forces, committees, interest networks, and elected positions. A new publication endeavor ACES has undertaken are the Teaching Practice Briefs. The Teaching Practice Briefs will present concise scholarly summaries and practical guides that describe teaching innovations and instructional strategies pertinent to counselor education. Briefs will provide creative, evidence-based practices to promote high quality teaching, inclusive learning environments, curricular transformation, and excellence in counselor education instructional design.

Graduate students play an important role in ACES. Students enrolled in doctoral studies in counselor education and supervision programs will find opportunities to work with and learn from current faculty members and leaders in the counseling profession. In addition, the conferences provide opportunities to network with other counseling professionals, and to present research and share experiences with professional colleagues.
