Standing Committees and Task Forces


The standing committees and task forces of ACTE® are the workforce of the Association and play an important role in implementing the strategic plan. Committees are made up of ACTE members who are appointed by their Vice Presidents to represent their Region or Division; task forces are made up of volunteers appointed based on expertise. Most committee vacancies are filled April-June. More information about committees and task forces can be found in the ACTE Committee/Task Force Handbook. Please contact Megan Kmiotekin ACTE’s Leadership Department if you have any questions.
