Building ACTE in Maine


August 7, 2013


Building ACTE in Maine

On May 8, 2013 a group of like-minded individuals met to begin establishing an ACTE state association for Maine. We were fortunate to be able to hold our meeting at Capital Area Technical Center in Augusta. Present were Dave Keaton, director of Region Two School of Applied Technology in Houlton; Chris Downing, director of Waldo Regional Vocational Center, Suzanne Hall, curriculum and assessment coordinator at Mid-Coast School of Technology, Bo Zabierek, student services director at Region Two School of Applied Technology, Deb Gilbert, co-op instructor at Capital Area Technical Center and me, an instructor at Mid-Coast School of Technology and ACTE Region 1 Fellow.

We spent the morning reviewing the constitution from several states as well as the bylaws for their ACTE organization. In the afternoon, we began developing a draft constitution for a Maine association. A great deal of time was spent discussing the name, mission and purpose, as well as affiliated sections. We all were in agreement that our state ACTE would include the New England Consortium of Career and Technical Education, which is a group that Dave Keaton has been instrumental in developing. This new association will also work cooperatively with our Maine Association of Career and Technical Administrators.

This is very exciting work! I am thrilled to be a part of establishing a career and technical organization for the state of Maine. Our next meeting was held on May 31. More updates to follow.
