2022 CACTE CareerTech Summit

Welcome Back to an In-Person Conference! 🙂


FYI, the CTE in Colorado Secondary Credentialing Session is FULL!  Please see the Colorado CTE website (www.coloradostateplan.com) website for information about the upcoming fall and spring online versions of this coursework.

In the meantime, you might consider one or two of the other Deep Dive sessions on Monday 7/18 to earn more PD hours! 🙂

Exhibitor registration is now closed. Sorry we missed you – hope to see you next year in Loveland, July 16-20, 2023.

  • Summit is July 17-21, 2022 at Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge, CO
  • Registration for attendees is open through July 11!
  • Be sure to ask your CTE Director/Principal/others(?) for financial help to attend the Summit. Here is a sample “letter of justification” you might personalize and use.
  • Need a W-9? Click here.
  • Who are the 2022 Exhibitors? Check them out here or on the Whova app! Be sure to thank the exhibitors for their support of Colorado CTE.
  • It’s a BYOB Summit – that’s “Bring Your Own Bag” 😉 – or whatever you use to carry around your “stuff”. CACTE will have a limited number of Summit tote bags available for a $5 donation.
  • The Summit will NOT be live-streamed. There IS an option to purchase recordings available after the Summit concludes – this package will include the General Sessions and selected Breakout Sessions. Recordings are included with in-person registration.
  • Graduate credit from CSU is available (at additional cost) in arrears through the CCCS Professional Development CTE Common Checklist. Please go to http://coloradostateplan.com/educator/cte-professional-development-credit/ for more information.  The 2022 CACTE Summit will be part of the CTE Common Professional Development Checklist available in 2023.
