Platform Statement:

My personal goals to accomplish as Region I Vice President would be the following: * Be active listener with membership concerns and ideas. It is not always about our own ideas as to how we should proceed but by consolidating multiple approaches as a means to give one CTE voice. * Reach out to all 15 Region I states for continued and additional Region I involvement on the Policy Committee and Region I functions. * Lead the Policy Committee in discussions as to how our Region I Conferences can be enhanced or even transformed into some new level of CTE professional development. * Promote ACTE Awards from each state throughout Region I and provide the appropriate recognition for CTE shining stars . * Be active in Common Core Standards initiative with communicating the importance of CTE integrated in the Common Core Standards at every level. * Be active in lobbying our state and federal representatives with the key role CTE plays in economic development and recession recovery. I believe my focuses for the Region I Vice President candidacy are achievable with the support of all members of Region I and the National ACTE organization.
