Working with Your Organization to Understand, Connect and Meet Your Needs
True partnerships require that each organizations’ goals are met. 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.
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.
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.
- Sector and member choices: Our national membership includes a variety of audiences – local and state members including teachers, administrators, guidance and career development professionals from both secondary and postsecondary institutions, and others who are leading high quality programs and seeking innovative solutions to meet the needs of students and their workforce partners.
- Four levels of support to choose from: ACTE’s corporate membership is structured with three levels – Supporter, Patron and Champion – and 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.
- Coalition for Workforce Development Through CTE: 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.
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.
ACTE works with potential vendors and sponsors to create a unique level of awareness and exposure to a partner’s brand, products and services.
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.
