2019 Advance CTE Spring Meeting



April 8-10, 2019
Omni Shoreham
2500 Calvert St NW
Washington, DC 20008


Join state Career Technical Education (CTE) leaders from across the country April 8-10 in Washington, D.C. for a three-day professional development conference that will explore the latest issues and challenges influencing CTE today. The annual Spring Meeting will equip you with the resources and knowledge you need to be innovative and bold as you begin to implement the Strengthening Career Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) and help you develop a clear vision to guide CTE in your state. Our agenda features breakout sessions featuring promising practices, roundtable discussions for peer-to-peer learning and panels led by CTE experts.

This meeting is more important than ever as it will be Advance CTE’s only public conference this year while we support state efforts to implement Perkins V.


This year’s meeting will push state CTE leaders to BE BOLD while also providing concrete examples of how other states have taken risks to gain real results for the learners they serve. View the full agenda here
