2003 Elections for ACTE Board of Directors


Members of the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) will choose a president-elect for the association and vice presidents for the following divisions and regions: Region II, Region V, Administration, Agricultural Education, Business Education, Family and Consumer Sciences Education, Guidance and Health Occupations Education. The ACTE president-elect will serve one year in that office, beginning July 1, 2003, followed by one year as president, and one year as past-president. The vice presidents will be elected for three-year terms, beginning July 1, 2003. The ACTE Bylaws permit divisions and regions to choose their vice presidents one year in advance, as vice presidents-elect. Vice presidents-elect will begin their three-year term on the Board of Directors July 1, 2004.

The three nominees for president-elect and 17 nominees for vice president and vice president-elect were chosen through official ACTE procedures. Nominating committees interviewed and nominated candidates for positions on the ACTE Board of Directors. Nominees for ACTE president-elect were then presented to the ACTE Assembly of Delegates, which met during the ACTE convention in Las Vegas. Nominees for division and region offices were submitted to their respective divisions or regions at annual business meetings held during the ACTE convention.

All ACTE affiliate, standard, direct, and life members whose membership dues were received at ACTE headquarters by January 15, 2003 are eligible to vote. All eligible members may vote for president-elect; members of all divisions and/or regions holding elections are also eligible to vote in those elections.

Please review the biographical information and platform statements for nominees and exercise your right to vote for the future leadership of the Association for Career and Technical Education. Use the enclosed envelope to return your ballot to the accounting firm of DeLeon & Stang, LLC of Gaithersburg, Maryland, which has been chosen to audit the tabulation of results for the Board of Directors Elections. Completed ballots must be postmarked by March 1, 2003 to be valid. Ballots will be counted and audited at the offices of DeLeon & Stang on March 15, 2003. Results will be posted immediately on the ACTE Web site and announced in the May issue of Techniques magazine.

Meet Your 2003-2004 President-Elect Candidates

ACTE asked the three president-elect candidates to answer the following questions to help members understand where the candidates stand on important issues facing the organization.

Why do you seek the office of President-Elect?

GILLISPIE. The main reason I want to serve as ACTE's president-elect is to continue my service to career and technical education by encouraging and growing our own potential leaders within our organization. Danny Cox once said, "Nobody in your organization will be able to sustain a level of motivation higher than you have as their leader." I believe that this is true and as your president-elect, my number-one priority will be to implement a Leadership Training Institute across the United States. Each state will identify potential leaders who will then come together for high-impact leadership training. The potential leaders we identify and train can then go back to their respective states where they will also implement a leadership training program. Developing quality leaders in an exponential fashion like this will impact ACTE abundantly. Not only will we develop leaders within our schools, communities and organization, but we will also begin to have an impact in the area of legislative advocacy.

MILLER. I have had many wonderful opportunities afforded to me through ACTE, and those experiences have only helped to enhance my career in education. ACTE has given me the opportunity to share ideas and network with fellow professionals across the country, thus strengthening my skills and abilities as an educator and leader.
