Central Council

Annual Conference

The first Australian Conference of Economists (ACE) was held in May 1970 in Melbourne, Victoria. The conference has since become an annual event. Responsibility for hosting the conference rotates between the various State Branches, while Central Council provides both continuity and support. ACE is the leading conference for economists in Australia. Each year it attracts top academic, policy and market economists to present their research and interact. The conference features both regional and international speakers.
