**Benefits subject to terms and conditions limiting utilization to personal use.  

***ACS Members with the premium package can activate LinkedIn Learning as a shared membership benefit. Given the limited number of licenses available, periods of inactivity or low usage may result in licenses being deactivated and recycled to share with other members. However, this benefit may be recovered at any time during the period of membership without losing account history or materials previously accessed.

  • ACS is committed to remaining a relevant, enjoyable, and valuable association for its Members, community and the broader enterprise. To ensure we are delivering on this promise, our benefits, packages, pricing, and membership offerings may change on a yearly basis.
