Ace Insider

June 2015 | Issue 3 


New Videos Available to Help Recruit Sponsors and Mentors

Need help promoting sponsorship and recruiting new mentors? Share these two new short videos highlighting the benefits sponsor firms and mentors gain through participation in ACE.


In the first, CEOs of national sponsors explain the value their companies gain from sponsorship.


The second video spotlights mentors discussing their experiences and how mentoring for ACE has benefited them personally and professionally.

See the videos on our new YouTube page here

Affiliates wanting to download either video should contact Andrew Frankel, ACE Regional Director (West), at afrankel@acementor.org.

When ACE launches its newly designed website homepage – stay tuned for an announcement in July – the videos will be linked to it.

New Sponsors Expand ACE’s Powerful Network

ACE welcomes Gensler, Johnson Controls, and Rosedin Electric to its family of national sponsors. Their regional offices across the country overlap with many ACE affiliates and can be a source of future mentors.

ACE Social Media Sites Can Increase Your Visibility

ACE’s Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn social media outlets are effective PR tools to:


Give national recognition to sponsors, mentors or school champions.


Promote an event more widely or report on its success.


Raise an affiliate’s profile.

See the links at the bottom of this newsletter.
