The Alabama Communities of Excellence (ACE) program is now part of the Alabama League of Municipalities (ALM). The move of ACE under the ALM umbrella became official today at a launch party at ALM headquarters in downtown Montgomery.
ACE was established in 2002 to aid select communities with populations between 2,000 and 18,000, helping them to identify and capitalize on opportunities for economic success. ALM has been an ACE partner for years, and ALM officials look forward to building on the foundation of that longstanding partnership.
“We are pleased to bring the ACE program into our fold,” said Greg Cochran, ALM executive director. “Community and economic development are critical to the health and vitality of Alabama’s smaller and rural municipalities, and ACE has been a key resource throughout the state for 20 years. Becoming a League program will allow ACE to not only maintain its original mission but expand services to communities with populations less than 2,000.”
