The Future of Computing Education Summit was held in June, 2009 with representatives of members of nine professional societies, membership organizations, and the National Science Foundation. Participants generally agreed that an "entity" for promoting computing education should be created. Planning for this entity, the Partnership for Advancing Computing Education (PACE) was supported by a grant by the National Science Foundation awarded in September, 2010. The PACE constitution was approved in June, 2011. Details about the many committed founders and contributors to PACE and its milestones can be found in the History of the Founding of PACE.
