ACE's soon-to-be-launched Second Life house received publicity in last month's issue of Spray Technology & Marketing magazine. It can be found on the last page in the 'Spray Patterns' section.
The article reads:
For the second year in a row, ACE was invited to present at the Southern Aerosol Technical Association (SATA) spring meeting.

Mike Berenstain, co-author of the popular “Berenstain Bears” book series, will be among the judges for the contest. Deadline for submissions is April 4, 2008.
Congratulations to Queshia Bradley, ACE's Education Programs Coordinator, for graduating from the Project LEAP (Leaders Emerging through Ability and Potential) program last week.
ACE recently exhibited a booth at CADCA's 18th Annual National Leadership Forum at the Convention Center in Washington D.C. CADCA stands for Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America, and this was the largest training conference for community coalition activists and substance abuse professionals.
WJZ Channel 13 in Baltimore featured ACE in one of their news stories last night about the dangers of inhalants on the 11:00 PM news. It will air at several other times during this week, as well as being available on their web site for those not in the Baltimore area. This is great exposure for ACE and we hope to see more opportunities like this in the future.
Welcome to The Alliance for Consumer Education! This is just a test post, but hopefully we will be adding more content soon. Thanks for stopping by!
