The 2019 conference theme “How Will CTE Shape the Future?” will focus on disciplines that are seeing an influx of emerging technologies such as biotechnology, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things. We are seeking to identify a variety of approaches that support the conference theme to help teachers, workforce developers, counselors, administrators, and business partners meet the challenges of incorporating these rapidly changing technologies into all aspects of the workforce development from curriculum to collaborations.

Conference attendees include staff from secondary schools, community colleges, and technical institutes, as well as government leaders in workforce development and representatives of business, industry, and labor. Selected speakers are responsible for their expenses and for registering for our conference at the discounted presenter rate.

We invite you to participate in the conference and to submit your most innovative idea as a possible presentation. Session proposals that include supporting data/statistics will receive top consideration. The deadline for non-keynote speaking proposal consideration will be the end of the day Eastern time, on a date that will be set soon.  Please return to this Web page later this year.
