ACTE is proud to announce a new partnership with the Law and Public Safety Education Network (LAPSEN). Together we commit to support CTE professionals in this sector with professional development opportunities, resources and member benefits.


New and Related Services DivisionThe New and Related Services Division includes several sections. These sections represent individuals from emerging areas of career and technical education unrelated to an established ACTE Division or individuals from areas that provide specialized support to broad areas of CTE that often cut across all Divisions (see list below). Membership in each NRS section provides an opportunity for specialized professional growth and development, as well as participation in all NRS and ACTE activities. Twenty-five members are required to establish a new section,* 200 members to create an Emerging Division and 750 members to become a Board Division with representation on ACTE’s Board of Directors by an elected vice president.
