ACE (Achieving Community Excellence)


Achieving Community Excellence (ACE) envisions a community that recognizes and capitalizes on the power that aligned principled relationships have to build and sustain community excellence.


As a trusted network of advisors and resource partners in the community, we work as a team on common goals to achieve community excellence. For ACE, relational excellence means bringing people together to address issues bigger than themselves. Our work has purpose that aligns with our intended outcomes. We believe our success will continue to result in a positive ripple effect throughout the rest of the community.

 Current Areas of Focus

Our objective is to proactively address remaining gaps within our talent development ecosystem, which includes:

  1. Workforce Development
  2. Entrepreneurship
  3. NextGen Leadership Development


Achieving Community Excellence (ACE) was created by the Greeley City Council in 2012 to support its objective to improve Greeley’s Civic Infrastructure.
