ACTE State Associations

Quality Association Standards Award



The mission of the Association for Career and Technical Education is to provide educational leadership in developing a competitive workforce.

The purpose of the Quality Association Standards is to provide benchmarks for state associations to determine levels of performance and satisfactory service to their members and prospective members.

QAS should be useful to states in evaluating their basic organization and whether their leadership is providing minimum, average or superior programs for the membership. It is not intended to be a competition between states and/or to establish a "class system" of state associations, nor is it a system for rating the performance of a state’s executive director or volunteer leaders.

It is hoped that the QAS will prompt states to challenge themselves to improve and maintain the very best possible organization and leadership for their members within the association’s means. ACTE is committed to assisting state leadership in reaching Association goals. 

The 2014 QAS application can be downloaded here. Applications are due Oct. 15. 

Annual Report

An annual report is to be submitted by the affiliated states. The report form is available as part of the QAS application or, for those not submitting a QAS application, as a separate document.  The annual report is due October 15.
