The National Apartment Association Education Institute (NAAEI) ACE Awards recognize outstanding achievement in the field of apartment career development and/or contributions made to, or on behalf of, NAAEI and its professional education interests and initiatives.

The ACE Industry Educator Award celebrates educators who have expanded the scope of career development and education initiatives beyond their responsibilities as a professional educator. Education is part of the job description of the professional educator.

The ACE Industry Practitioner Award celebrates volunteer leaders who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to the career development and education initiatives of NAAEI and the apartment industry. The volunteer leader’s job does not primarily deal with education, and education endeavors are beyond the scope of his or her job description.
