AACS specializes in updating our member schools with information about school management, new teaching methods, current industry trends and Washington DC updates. For those schools that participate in Title IV funding, we lobby Congress and the Department of Education aggressively to protect the interests of privately owned cosmetology schools. AACS is your representative in Washington, DC.

Most of all, AACS members act as a family, often helping each other with addressing problems facing beauty education. This “networking” is often listed as the most important benefit to membership.
