What events does ACTE conference offer?

Nearly all my friends have been talking about ACTE conference. I have been wondering what ACTE is and what it offers. Unfortunately, none of them seem to give me detailed information. My workmates and sister who have attended one of the meetings are really praising it but I want to get information from someone else. Being my sibling, I feel she could exaggerate. I have desired to know what they are engaged in and their upcoming events before I can register for the next conference. I need a conference that will add value to my life and career.

I was one of the attendees at the previous meeting. Association for Career and Technical Education represents several careers and professionals from technical education. All these professionals work to make a difference in the lives of students. The educators are provided with professional development, resources, and information that can help them achieve more in their careers.

The main goal of the ACTE conferences is to offer educational leadership in developing a competitive workforce. It also focuses on helping the educators deliver top quality CTE programs that can make sure students are positioned for success in their different careers.

Members can also grow professionally by volunteering. It can also help you build relationships with peers who are highly engaged across the nation.  It has five bodies: delegate’s assembly, the board of directors, state associations, divisions, and regions. The state associations are local organizations within every state. Their activities are tailored towards the provision of member value and services custom made for each state. These state associations are further organized into regions. Each geographical region provides networking and professional development to its members within the region. Different from the above, the divisions give a particular type of technical education and career as an identity to its members.

Conferences for educators are very beneficial. As an educator, you get the opportunity to meet highly ranked experts. This helps build expertise network. It also gives an educator the opportunity to interact with fellow specialists from other areas thereby giving them the chance to share their classroom experiences.

ACTE is a better conference compared to others. They have activities running throughout the seasons, unlike other educator conference associations that have annual activities. Its structure is good and well organized. They understand that there are unique challenges to each region. Organizing the conferences within the regions provides a chance for these challenges to be addressed by the stakeholders involved. I am eagerly waiting for this year’s conference in my area after which I will attend the annual summer meeting. You should not miss the chance this year. All you need to do is to visit the site and see what is upcoming before you can register. You can attend any of them depending on your preference and location.
