ACTE Announces New Policy Working Group for CTE Centers

 ACTE Announces New Policy Working Group for CTE Centers

Area career and technical education centers are an important component of the national CTE system and of many states. Because of the distinctive role that CTE centers play in education and workforce training, the state and federal policy issues affecting these institutions are often unique and distinct from other CTE program providers. ACTE wants to ensure that the needs of CTE centers are reflected in federal K-12, higher education and other policy issue areas. To better inform our policy and advocacy efforts, we are announcing the formation of a new policy working group for CTE centers. This group will provide educators and administrators with the opportunity to weigh in on ACTE’s federal policy initiatives and to discuss the unique policy challenges facing their programs and institutions.   

There will be an introductory conference call on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. (EST). Those interested in learning more about the working group are encouraged to participate. Please RSVP to ACTE Legislative Liaison Mitch Coppes (mcoppes@acteonline.org) by April 28.
