Become a member of ACE

For the Inquisitive Mind

The Association for Continuing Education is a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to providing stimulating, non-credit, continuing education programs. ACE is affiliated with the Laure & Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University, but also operates some other events and activities. These are all reflected in the catalog and other informational material, as well as on this website.

Membership is open to all who want to learn and to help in supporting quality programs. ACE offers many opportunities for participation including: Lecture Day, Book Discussion Day, Book Sale Project, Off Campus Studies, and summer programs.

We are a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions and membership dues are deductible. Membership dues and the proceeds from the book sale are our only sources of financial support.

Membership is for one year: September 1 – August 31.
