LeAnn Wilson

LeAnn Wilson 2016Executive Director, ACTE®

LeAnn Wilson has served as the executive director of the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) since 2013, and has been with the association since 2005. Wilson holds a deep appreciation for the work that America’s career and technical education (CTE) professionals perform every day to equip their students with the technical, academic and employability skills they will need for college and career success, and she has strived to raise awareness of CTE among policymakers and the public.

In her leadership role at ACTE, Wilson has prioritized strategies to ensure long-term organizational stability, maximize member engagement and value and increase public support for CTE students and programs. As ACTE’s chief financial officer, she developed and implemented sound institutional plans to promote financial growth for the national organization. She has overseen efforts to reach out to CTE professionals in new states across the country, and to better serve current members with high-quality professional development and leadership opportunities. Wilson also regularly weighs in on public policy discussions at the national level, including through her work as a member of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship, as well as in regular contributions to media publications.

Wilson has served her community in a variety of financial and leadership positions throughout her career, including through 20 years in nonprofit association environments. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of Maryland, College Park, and currently resides in Alexandria, Virginia, with her two daughters.
