Professional Arkansas Association of Cooperative Extension Specialists (AACES)

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.

Why join AACES?

AACES is active in community service. Join the community service committee if you're interested!

Recognition of peers doing an exceptional job is a priority for AACES. Awards are nominated and selected annually.

Don't miss our annual bake sale and fall festival at the Little Rock State Office!
