Passion. Purpose. Professionalism...

The American Association of Code Enforcement is a national nonprofit association representing the profession of code enforcement.

Since its inception, AACE has become the premier association fostering code compliance through its certification program, education, training and enforcement. Today, AACE is the internationally recognized leader in the profession of code enforcement, with a membership growing at the rate of 20 percent per year.

Code officers provide essential and beneficial services that ensure quality of life in neighborhood communities from coast to coast. As population density, economic constraints and technology place ever greater pressures on communities, the need and demand for professional code officers continues to rise.


Growing and going strong since 1988

The American Association of Code Enforcement (AACE), founded in 1988 by representatives from five states, now represents all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Canada.

Its members are employed by cities, towns, parishes, counties and state government for the enforcement of housing, property maintenance and zoning ordinances intended to provide minimum standards for the protection of the public's health, safety and welfare.

The association's mission is to educate, elevate and improve the profession of code enforcement.

  • Career development through educational programs, resources and tools, culminating in certification for the professional code officer
  • Professional advancement within a network of peers and and potential employers accessible in a nationwide membership directory
  • News to go in the form of electronic newsletters, web resources and emails news flashes to keep members abreast in the latest code enforcement developments and issues.
