  Statewide associations of adult nightclub owners and operators actually predate the National Association of Club Executives (ACE), which was formed in 1999 by ED Publications and a group of the industry’s leading club owners and First Amendment attorneys. Over the years a number of states have launched adult nightclub associations, some under the ACE banner and some with their own branded association names. On this website we track what is happening with existing statewide associations, and the efforts to start associations in other states.
