New and Related Services Division



Learn more about the New and Related Services Division from Sherry Adrian!

The 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 career and technical education 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.

Presently, the New and Related Services Division sections include:

Meet Sherry Adrian

CTE is facing unprecedented cuts in funding at the very time when we can least afford it. As a consequence of the recent economic downturn, more and more people are looking for a way to increase their potential for employment. CTE is a desirable solution because our training meets a wide range of needs. We offer dynamic programs designed to prepare high school students for entry into college or the workforce, to further develop the capabilities of recent college graduates and to enhance the skill set of seasoned professionals.
