Many thanks to those of you who braved the "snowquester" for the final day of the National Policy Seminar 2013!

Wednesday's highlights included a panel on state policies and their implications for federal CTE, as well as presentations from Assistant Secretary Jane Oates of the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration; from the Office of Vocational and Adult Education and the Department of Health and Human Services; and from the National Innovation Center for CTE.

We will soon have follow-up materials added to our website, and will be sharing feedback from your fellow attendees. Until then, thank you for Climbing the Hill with us to advocate for CTE!
