In December 2019 the DSF Board of Directors approved support for a concept called Advocates for Connected Experiences (ACE). The purpose of ACE is to be a forum for sharing among associations in the digital signage, digital experience, and out-of-home industries. This sharing is intended to help associations which represent similar groups of constituents to find common language and accepted practices. The collaborative environment is also intended to facilitate cross-education of partner constituencies by helping each other discover knowledge and professional development resources offered their respective groups.
ACE’s first collaborative project is to post COVID 19 public service announcement (PSA) content which may be used publicly under the creators’ use policies. Other collaboration will occur and the DSF anticipates an operating agreement to be approved by ACE partners this spring. ACE is only open to associations, not individual companies.
