Annual Report: Fiscal Year 2001


President's Report

The ACTE Annual Report highlights a number of our association's achievements during the year that ended June 30, 2001. Last year's report indicated that many state associations had followed ACTE's name change by adopting "Career and Technical" in their organization names. I am pleased that a total of 37 state associations have now incorporated this terminology. This uniformity throughout our organization will significantly help our efforts to broaden public awareness and understanding of how vocational education has evolved.

ACTE's government relations activities continued to play a critical role in the growth of Perkins Act funding to more than $1.2 billion for FY 2001. The involvement of your association and our members in the legislative process provides essential advocacy for career and technical programs ... advocacy that might otherwise not exist. Active ACTE members are to be commended for your "strong voices" in the continuation of legislative funding support for career and technical education.

This report provides information on these and other activities that have taken place over the past year. In addition, there are other ongoing projects that merit mention:

Continued involvement as Congress considers reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, including such issues as vouchers and block grants

* Postsecondary issues advocacy as Congress begins consideration of a new Welfare Reform Act and Higher Education Act

* Continued development of an image campaign under the guidance of our Business-Education Partners

* Additional programs to enhance member recruitment efforts

Continued redesign and expansion of ACTE's Web site, including online advocacy capabilities

Commitment from McDonald's Corp. to become the annual sponsor of ACTE's teacher awards, including a new award for community service

ACTE is successful because of the involvement of its members and state associations. This annual report highlights our achievements. Read it and share it with members of your community so they will want to be involved in career and technical education. Our programs are the key to America's future success.

William "Bill" Snelson President 2000-2001

Membership

There was a good deal of activity in the recognition arena for members and state associations. Thirty-nine schools and institutions of higher learning were recognized for having 100 percent participation of eligible employees in the ACTE Achieve 100 program. Twenty-two state associations received the ACTE Quality Association Award for meeting and surpassing standards of service to their members.

Membership in ACTE remains strong with over 34,000 members. ACTS recruited 4,202 new members during the fiscal year and will continue to promote membership to those with an interest in career and technical education. The Member-Get-AMember campaign will continue to serve as a strong part of the ACTE membership marketing efforts.

The membership staff has seen some changes during the year. Dues and convention registration processing have been outsourced. A new Assistant Executive Director for Membership has been hired, and the department is focusing on improving the core member services activities.

Convention and Meetings

The December 2000 ACTE Annual Convention in San Diego had over 6,000 attendees and over 250 exhibiting companies at the Career Tech Expo. High-profile speakers included presentations by Les Brown, Jeremy Rifkin, Gregory Riker, and Beck Weathers. Attendees had numerous professional development opportunities planned by the divisions and regions with over 600 sessions from which to choose. Popular attractions included the ACTE Bookstore, E-mail Stations and the ACTE Newsstand. Attendees had the ability to share feedback about the convention via the electronic convention survey system.
