2021 Annual Membership Meeting

Creating Collaboration and Connecting Communities

In 2022, the ACES Northwest Network will celebrate five years of growth! As we look back on our collaborative efforts, we want to be ready for the future of connections. The accelerated rollout of electric vehicles for deliveries and freight is matched only by the dramatic recovery of shared ride services, proof that the ACES revolution is an integral part of how we move and how we will power our world. Join us on December 9 for a glimpse into what industry leaders are seeing for 2022 and beyond and be ready to be part of our conversations in this all-new meeting format, featuring interactive ACES Insight Chats in a fast-moving format that you can watch on a laptop or phone or listen to on an afternoon stroll or at the gym! You won’t want to miss this online-only event!
