The “CTE Showcase at the Capitol” held on Wednesday, February 12 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm was a success in its new format! During that time frame a variety of CTE groups had table displays set up and Ponderosa HS Catering classes provided tasty appetizers/beverages. Legislators/staff members from fourteen offices visited the Showcase in the first floor west lobby to see what Colorado CTE is about. Several groups personally invited their legislators to visit and they had the most successful visits! The legislators were thoughtful about visiting all the tables after they visited with their own constituents. This experience reinforced CACTE’s plan to encourage more year-round advocacy!!!
