Call for Proposals Submission
Thank you for your interest in 2014 Best Practices and Innovations Conference submission process. The deadline to submit a proposal for the 2014 conference has now passed.
As a reminder for those who've already submitted their presentation, each proposal will be evaluated by reviewers, and final decisions about the program will be made by April 17, 2014. Submitters will be notified about the status of their proposals shortly thereafter via e-mail. If you have questions about the status of your proposal, please contact Tom Applegate.
We're excited that you're considering joining us in beautiful Cape Cod, MA on September 17-19, 2014. This is an excellent opportunity for you to showcase programs and to share your expertise with colleagues. A best practice is one that has empirical data documenting the best practice. An innovation is defined as a teacher, school and/or administrative practice that demonstrates innovations in career and technical education, but has not yet validated the practice through empirical data. Please note: All breakout sessions will be offered only on September 18th and 19th.
