2014 NPS Update: Policymakers to Talk CTE at Capitol Hill Session

ACTE is excited to announce that the 2014 National Policy Seminar will, for the second year in a row, feature programing on Capitol Hill! The stately Congressional Auditorium in the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center (CVC) will once again play host to our Offsite General Session on Tuesday, March 4.  Completed in 2008, the CVC is a beautiful addition to the Capitol complex—conveniently located between the House and the Senate office buildings with easy access to the Washington Metrorail.

Tuesday’s session will feature remarks from invited Members of Congress and congressional staff who will provide updates on important policy developments affecting CTE. Lawmakers and staff will discuss topics including the reauthorizations of the Perkins CTE Act, Elementary and Secondary Education Act, and Workforce Investment Act, as well as federal funding for CTE.  Additionally, ACTE will present the Policymaker of the Year Award to recognize policymakers who have made significant contributions to furthering the cause of CTE over the previous year.  Don’t miss this great opportunity to hear directly from the policymakers who have a major impact on CTE issues in the year ahead!

The session at the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center will take place from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., so please try to schedule your NPS Hill visits after this time! Register for NPS today!

Any events held during NPS at the Capitol Visitor Center will be free and open to the public. Those wishing to attend a CVC event who are not registered for the full conference must RSVP to
