When I joined ACTE, I didn’t realize how valuable membership was. After completing the fellowship program and realizing there were many opportunities, I became very involved with the organization and want others to do the same! As Region II vice president, my goal will be to increase the engagement of members by communicating, collaborating and creating.
Sharing opportunities with members and communicating about ACTE programs is important, but communication must be two-way. Therefore, I plan to have systems in place to gather input from Region II members about their interests in CTE, their perspectives on programs, and to learn more about how ACTE can better meet their professional needs.
Given the accessibility of online methods for working together, collaborating with members across Region II could be accomplished with ease. Asking members to serve on committees, task force groups, and present at conferences will allow Region II to assemble collaborative teams of people who want to be involved.
Committee and task force work often results in recommendations, policies and programs. Creating these products demonstrates how the voices of members impact decisions and actions.
Engagement will increase when we communicate with members, collaborate with members and create opportunities for members in Region II and nationally.
