Working with Your Organization to Understand, Connect and Meet Your Needs
An ACTE Partnership Provides Options!
We represent the breadth of all that is CTE. That’s a powerful reach but it’s nothing if it’s not meeting your needs. True partnerships require that each organizations’ goals are met.
An ACTE partnership begins with becoming a National Affiliate Organization Member or Corporate Member. These special categories of membership allow us to take the time to understand your needs and learn how we can best connect you to the CTE community in ways that advance your goals and agenda, and for you to understand and experience the work of the Association to serve its members.
Corporate Members receive special discounts on Association services such as advertising in ACTE’s award-winning Techniques magazine, in ACTE’s member communications and in exhibiting at ACTE’s national conferences.
Growing Your Relationship with ACTE
Once you are an established Corporate Member, you can continue to build your relationship with ACTE through three additional levels of sponsorship – Friend of ACTE, ACTE Patron, and ACTE Champion. Each level includes a variety of activities to help your organization gain exposure and recognition within the CTE community.
If those options are not what you are seeking, we are happy to discuss and develop a plan that does suit your needs.
Connecting CTE to the Workforce
ACTE recognizes that today’s marketplace requires students have the academic, technical and employability skills that business and industry is seeking. That’s why we have made career readiness a priority and are aligning our work with employer needs.
In partnership with Ford Next Generation Learning, ACTE hosts an employer-led Coalition that is working with us side-by-side to advise on our Association’s programming and advocate for CTE. The Coalition also helps to recognize employer leaders who are contributing to CTE’s health and success.
ACTE and its signature supporters work together to promote the CTE field through a wide range of collaboration and focused initiatives.
ACTE is a national association representing thousands of career and technical education professionals, all working to make a real difference in students’ lives. We provide educators with powerful resources, professional development, and information to help them achieve more.
The Impact Awards recognize groups and individuals who enhance CTE by contributing to the improvement, promotion, development and progress of CTE. This year, we had a record number of applicants in all business awards. Learn more about these awards and see samples of exemplary partner applicants.
