Climbing the Hill
March 4-6
Crystal Gateway Marriott, Arlington, Virginia

Thank you for attending the 2013 National Policy Seminar! This year's NPS provided a critical opportunity for CTE advocates to come together to climb the Hill, ensuring that Congress knows the value of CTE. We highly value your participation and appreciate you braving the "snowquester" to be with us!

This year's highlights included the opening address by Dr. Anthony Carnevale of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce; a panel session at the Capital Visitors Center with key education policy staff from both sides of the aisle; the presentation of the Policymaker of the Year award to Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-PA) and Rep. Jim Langevin (D-RI), co-chairs of the Congressional CTE Caucus; and, of course, your visits with legislators on Capitol Hill.

Social Media Advocacy

Sharing your thoughts with your Senators or Representative on a routine basis will keep CTE in the front of their minds. By using advocacy as a tool, we can influence Congress to continue and improve successful programs like Perkins, ESEA and the Workforce Investment Act. Social media advocacy is one of the quickest and simplest ways to spread the CTE message to your Members of Congress. You can share about the benefits of your CTE program, activities your students are involved in, or your thoughts on key policy issues. You can even post pictures to illustrate your points.
