The American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE) is a professional association providing leadership for the field of adult, community and continuing education through publications, conferences, advocacy, and dissemination of research and best practices. AAACE was founded in 1982.


The mission of AAACE is to provide leadership for the field of adult and continuing education by expanding opportunities for adult growth and development; unifying adult educators; fostering the development and dissemination of theory, research, information, and best practices; promoting identity and standards for the profession; and advocating relevant public policy and social change initiatives. AAACE is dedicated to the belief that lifelong learning contributes to human fulfillment and positive social change. AAACE members envision a more humane world made possible by the diverse practice of the members in helping adults acquire the knowledge, skills and values needed to lead productive and satisfying lives.


AAACE publishes the leading adult education journals in the field: Adult Education Quarterly (AEQ), Adult Learning (AL), and the Journal of Transformative Education (JTED). In addition, the organization publishes the Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education every 10 years.


The AAACE annual conference is held in different regions of the country on a rotating basis, often in partnership with state, regional, or other national and international associations. Several AAACE commissions offer pre-conferences and co-conferences during the annual conference, including the Commission on International Adult Education, the Commission of Professors of Adult Education, the Commission for Distance Learning and Technology.
