2017 Colorado Legislative Session info now available!

CACTE has received the 2017 final reports from Legislative Specialist, Stacey Lestina.  Please read the four reports (click here) to catch up on what happened at the Colorado State Capitol earlier in the year.

The CACTE Legislative Committee will meet via WebEx on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 from 4-6 pm.  If you signed up for this committee during the 2017 CACTE CareerTech Summit, you should have received an email regarding the meeting. Remember that funding for CTE programs in Colorado comes from both federal Perkins dollars AND state Career & Technical Act dollars, so it is important to be aware of what is happening with legislation at both levels.   If you are interested in joining the Legislative Committee, please let Debbie know (cacte@cacte.org) and she will add you to the list!

The mission of the Association for Career and Technical Education is to provide educational leadership in developing a competitive workforce.

The purpose of the Quality Association Standards (QAS) is to provide benchmarks for state associations to determine levels of performance and satisfactory service to their members and prospective members. QAS should be useful to states in evaluating their basic organization and whether their leadership is providing minimum, average or superior programs for the membership. It’s not intended to be a competition between states and/or to establish a “class system” of state associations, nor is it a system for rating the performance of a state’s executive director or volunteer leaders.

The hope of the QAS is to prompt states to challenge themselves to improve and maintain the very best possible organization and leadership for their members within the association’s means. ACTE is committed to assisting state leadership in reaching Association goals.
