CACTE announces the Call for Presentations for the 2019 CareerTech Summit in Loveland, CO. Decide what you have to share that is of interest to most Career & Technical Education professionals and complete the 2019 Call for Presentation Proposals application!

Don’t be shy – each CTE professional has knowledge that would benefit others! Have a soft skills unit that your students really enjoyed? Experience a fabulous year with your CTSO? Read a book that inspired you? Have a super connection with a post-secondary partner? Know of some apps that others could use? Have a great partnership with business/industry? Not sure about presenting alone – grab a friend and present together! CACTE needs YOU to share your knowledge with others!!!
NEW INFO: A question has been asked about marking proposals as “Educate, Advocate or Lead”. Here is a description you can use in making that decision:
- EDUCATE: professional development for educators, teaching pedagogy, best practices
- ADVOCATE: legislative issues and how they affect your programs, advocating for CTE in general and/or for your program in particular
- LEAD: personal development for teachers to lead in their schools/districts/professional associations like CACTE
