Welcome, ACELerator

Our Free ACELerator level is designed to introduce you to Alachua County Emerging Leaders and keep you more connected, informed and involved. You’re now subscribed to the ACELerator newsletter. 

Other ways to get involved:

Join a committee

Joining one of our committees is a great way to get to know the young professionals taking leadership roles in our community. Reach out the chair of the committee you’re most interested in working with or simply attend one of the monthly meetings on our calendar.

Attend an event

Join us for a monthly happy hour or enjoy some of our other activities like volunteer days, and group activities. Check our calendar and follow us on Facebook to find out the latest. 

Why become a paid member?

Expand your network

Between our directory of members and an ongoing members only online chat in Slack, you’ll never attend an event again where you haven’t had an opportunity to get to know someone before you arrive. 

Discounts on events

ACEL members get discounts on our paid events — attend enough and membership pays for itself. 

Microgrants and Mentorship

Members are eligible to apply for microgrants of up to $200 for learning opportunities, as well as become part of our mentor matching program.
