ACME occupies the space between the media industry and academic institutions that train journalists. It aims to make the media in Uganda, and the East African region, a more effective platform for the provision of information on public affairs, a tool for monitoring official power, and a forum for vibrant public debate.It works to deliver quick turn around time without compromising quality in mid-career training for journalists, media literacy training for the broader population, media research, media monitoring, and freedom of expression advocacy. It is governed by an annual general meeting made up of subscribers as the highest body, a board of directors as the policy-making organ, and a management team led by an executive director that carries out day-to-day activities.
