Any member eligible for retired member status and who has at least 10 years of ACE membership may apply for life membership.

Charter status is offered to countries in which budgets and salaries preclude paying individual dues. A designated representative of a country must apply for charter status and pay the equivalent annual dues of an active member. The representative then provides ACE with a list of at least 10 communication and technology professionals eligible for membership; these persons receive affiliate status. For additional information about charter memberships, see Affiliates & Partners.
