NEW! Membership Referral Program

Midwest ACE is excited to roll out a new incentive program! As a member in good standing, if you refer a brand new individual MWACE member outside your organization, you will be eligible to receive a $150.00 credit off the next upcoming Annual Conference Registration fee! If you refer a new GROUP membership (outside your organization) to join MWACE, you (or your institution) will receive one full complimentary Annual Conference Registration ($499.00 value)!

The process is simple! 

  1. Refer a new individual or group to join MWACE. They will complete the new membership application and list you as the referral. 
  2. You get the credit!


  1. Only one referral per membership year per individual member is eligible for the award.
  2. The referral needs to be for an individual(s) outside of your institution, organization and or related satellite locations.
  3. The funds for the new member invoice must be received prior to the credit being applied.
  4. Conference credit must be used in the year in which the membership was created and cannot be applied to future events or conferences.
