COABE'S National Partner, ACTE, Offers Postsecondary CTE Leadership Opportunity

We’re pleased to announce a new program designed to grow the leadership skills of professionals working in postsecondary career and technical education (CTE). The Postsecondary Leadership Success Program by ACTE — Sponsored by ECMC Foundation (PLSP-ECMCF) will cultivate the next generation of career and technical educators and administrators heading up programs in their institutions.

We believe by having participants from your state apply and be selected to participate in the program has the potential to help strengthen the relationship between postsecondary CTE professionals and your state association. Participants will be introduced to the professional development and networking that you provide throughout your state and encouraged to become actively involved in your association.

Please alert your postsecondary CTE contacts about the program and the deadline to apply by February 3rd. If you have questions about the program or how to promote it to this audience, please don’t hesitate to contact Lauren Fillebrown for assistance.
