Call for Proposal

Interested in submitting a session proposal to present at the 2020 Region IV Leadership Conference? This conference takes place April 15-17, 2020 at the New Orleans Downtown Marriott at the Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The conference specifically focuses on the professional development for CTE practitioners in ACTE’s Region IV (Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas).

The conference planning committee has identified priority content from the ACTE CTE Quality Program of Study Framework for strengthening the skills of CTE professionals in both secondary and postsecondary programs. In an attempt to broadly represent the range of sectors and geographic identities (urban, suburban, and rural) involved in both secondary and postsecondary CTE programs throughout the states, the conference organizers reserve the right to align similar themed proposals into panel discussions. Should your proposal be selected and assigned to a panel, you will be invited to connect with the other panelists to coordinate your collaborative session.

Each submission must indicate which element of the ACTE CTE High-quality Framework the proposed presentation addresses.
