AACES works with administration and other extension organizations to enhance our specialists' working experience and strengthen the agency. Each year, AACES recognizes outstanding extension work through annual awards, and members have the opportunity to participate in professional development, community service projects and social events. Through AACES, members learn more about extension and each other.

The annual AACES Fall Festival is full of fun, food, and frolicking! Above some of our specialists strike a pose before the party begins.   Did we mention FOOD? There will always be a great offering of food from our social committee at our events!   Our annual bake sale is held in the spring just in time for Valentine's Day!
