2007 ACTE Convention and Career Tech Expo: The Premier Career and Technical Education Professional Development and Networking Event


ACTE knows that every educator needs something different from a professional development event. Some people focus on the networking, some on the exhibit hall, and some on the General Session speakers. ACTE, however, is dedicated to giving you all of this and more. As educators look to make their decision to attend, ACTE has pulled together a list of available sessions by a number of categories. If you are thinking about attending, please check out ACTE's list of sessions. You can see sessions divided in a number of ways:

* Division--lists accepted sessions by ACTE Division

* Grade Level--are you looking for secondary or postsecondary? ACTE has both

* Priority Area--ACTE took data from state directors and aligned their priorities with ACTE sessions

* Content Provider--ACTE lists each provider and the sessions they are sponsoring.

With these resources, you should easily be able to find the professional development you need at ACTE's Annual Convention. To find these lists, go to www.acteonline.org/convention and look under "2007 Convention Schedule."

CAREER TECH EXPO

More than 200 companies will be in Las Vegas showcasing the latest products and services specifically for the career and technical education market. This is the one time a year when you can talk directly with providers, get hands-on experience, and compare prices. For a complete list of exhibiting companies, go to www.acteonline.org/convention.

So much to see, so much to learn--See you in Las Vegas.

The 2007 ACTE Annual Convention and Career Tech Expo marks the first time ACTE has brought together such a wide raWnge of content partners.
