Other Levels of Partnership with ACTE
In addition to our standard Corporate Membership option, ACTE offers three additional levels – Friends of ACTE, Patrons of ACTE, ACTE Champions – each with its own benefits to help your organization gain exposure and recognition within the CTE community. Learn more about the levels of partnership.
If those options are not what you are seeking, we are happy to discuss and develop a plan that does suit your needs.

Other Ways to Get Involved
Today’s career and technical education programs are key to ensuring your industry has the skilled workforce it needs to remain competitive today and in the future. But education administrators, teachers and guidance professionals must be aware of your industry and the career opportunities it provides students for curriculum and program alignment to occur.
To bridge the skills gap, ACTE has launched the Career Pavilion, which is typically held during ACTE’s CareerTech VISION conference. Career Pavilion is returning to CareerTech VISION 2022 as a unique opportunity to tell your story to more than 4,000 CTE leaders, many of whom are making decisions about curriculum, teaching the skills needed for the workplace and providing career guidance to the students who will be the backbone of your future workforce. Please visit the VISION website to learn more.
Created as a companion event to ACTE’s CareerTech Expo, which focuses on products and services, Career Pavilion is about ideas; it is a venue designed to spur discussion and action to address the gaps that exist between education and the workplace.
Join us as an exhibitor at ACTE’s CareerTech VISION.
VISION attendees are respected hard-to-reach education decision-makers: superintendents, counselors, administrators, principals, curriculum specialists, and school board members. VISION attendees are education authorities who initiate projects and programs, solicit bids, and are prepared to make purchasing decisions based on what they see at the CareerTech Expo. Your company’s connection with these hard-to-reach education decision makers and authorities begins with reserving a CareerTech Expo exhibit space.
This is a unique opportunity to focus on increasing educators’ interest in collaborating with business and industry. By sharing information, news and activities that highlight the connection between CTE and employers, ACTE distributes to the nationwide community of career and technical educational professionals.
