The divisions of NCACTE assist with an open state forum to promote, study, and discuss any issue involved in Career and Technical Education.

Welcome Message from the President

My name is Julie Pack, and I have the honor of serving as the 2023-2024 NCACTE President. I currently serve as the Senior Executive Director for Career & Technical Education and Magnet Programs for Durham Public Schools, in Durham, NC. I have been engaged with CTE since 2011 when I became a CTE Director. I have had the privilege of being an ACTE Leadership Fellow in 2020, and I currently represent Region 2 on the Policy Committee for the Administration Division for ACTE. I was also the Administration Division Secretary in 2021-2022. I am extremely passionate about career education and look forward to serving the state in this role.

Please consider joining NCACTE if you have not already done so and participate in the engaging Professional Development Opportunities we have scheduled for this school year. With your help we can continue to provide the best resources and opportunities for Career and Technical Education Teachers in North Carolina so that we can continue to make a difference in the lives of the almost 1,000,000 students who participate in CTE courses. Please reach out and let NCACTE know how we can best serve you this school year.
