The Australian Council for Educational Leaders (ACEL) is the major professional association for educational leaders and our views are sought and respected by government and policy makers. ACEL draws its membership from all sectors of education in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the rest of the world.

The structure of ACEL ensures that the strength, breadth and diversity of our affiliates and our affiliation with the Commonwealth Council for Educational Administration and Management (CCEAM) provides a network of colleagues nationally and internationally.

ACEL is a leader in professional development and offers the opportunity to participate in leadership programs, topical seminars and workshops hosted at the national, local affiliate and association level. Membership of ACEL provides leaders with an extraordinary array of benefits, including support from ACEL's international partner, the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD).

Membership of ACEL provides leaders with an extraordinary array of publications that include the Australian Educational Leader, Directions in Education, Perspectives on Educational Leadership, EdVines, Leading and Managing and the ACEL Monograph Series. These provide members with regular educational research, theory and best practice, news, and updates at the national and international level. ACEL's publications are available online. All members receive updates on significant forthcoming events and key educational leadership websites, regular educational leadership book reviews and significant materials.
