  • ABOUT G.A.C.E.

    Established in 1998, the Georgia Association of Code Enforcement (G.A.C.E.) has been dedicated to providing professional training to the growing population of Code Enforcement Officers throughout Georgia.

    The purpose of GACE shall be to study and advance the science and practice of Code Enforcement, to further the interests of the professions, and to promote professionalism, fellowship, education and communication among its members.
    GACE Certificate Training Program is facilitated through the UGA Carl Vinson Institute of Government  and supported by the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) and the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA).  The first training conference held by GACE was in the fall of 1998 at the University of Georgia (UGA) Center for Continuing Education located in Athens, Georgia.  Now, two conferences are offered annually, one in the Spring in Savannah and another in the Fall in Young Harris, to provide an opportunity for officers all over the state to network and receive practical and relevant instruction to assist them in their daily duties.  In 2008, GACE revised its training curriculum adding a Level II (Masters) Certificate to its Level I Certificate and just recently a Level III Certificate in 2015.
    The membership count for GACE has grown exponentially from only 50 members in 1998 to over 300 members in 2016, all due to the dedication of GACE members and volunteers as well as local jurisdictional support for the code enforcement field.
    GACE has several committees on which to serve that include lobbying for state legislation to protect code enforcement officers, selecting training curriculum, supporting and recruiting members and supporting public education.   GACE also provides educational scholarships for its member’s children in their pursuit of higher education
