Changes to Spring Conference 2018  **Important Notice**

Dear Members,
Many of you expressed concern about the Spring ACET conference being scheduled during the April STAAR testing.  Taking your concerns into consideration, we worked with the hotel and were able to change the conference dates.
The new dates will be April 18, 19 and 20.  The conference will begin at 8:00 on the 18th and end at noon on the 20th.  Registration for the conference will open on January 17th.
As in the past, room reservations for the Renaissance will be attached to your registering for the conference.  Hence, once you are registered for the conference, you will receive a link for the hotel.  You are not able to directly register with the Renaissance Hotel for a room.  Reservations for overflow hotels will be made directly with that hotel.  Overflow hotels will open when the Renaissance is full.
We are excited that we were able to make this change to meet the needs of all of those of you who will be involved with testing in your district.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Spring Conference!
Shirley Coleman
Executive Director


Message from our President
Dear ACET Membership:
On behalf of the ACET (Association for Compensatory Educators of Texas) Executive Council and Program Planning Committee, I would like to remind you about our upcoming conference at the Austin Renaissance Hotel, scheduled April 10-12, 2018.
Our professional learning conference focusses on grants management, best practices and compliance through federal and state funded grant programs targeting at risk learners. Regardless of your level of expertise in grants management, you will certainly benefit from the shared expertise of Texas Education Agency presenters, and others in the field who share their best practices. The contacts you make at ACET will provide you a network of supportive professionals. I hope you will mark your spring calendar and plan to attend the upcoming ACETr conference.
I’m am honored to continue to serve our organization as ACET President. ACET conferences would not be possible if it were not for those willing to serve on our Program Planning Committee, the ACET professional staff as well as the many volunteers who work behind the scenes to make our conference worthy of your time.  I encourage you to get registered now and make plans to join us in Austin.
Very Respectfully,

Julia Willett-Weekly,
ACET President

Message from our President-Elect

Dear ACET Membership:
Mark your calendars and make plans to attend the ACET Spring Conference on April 10-12, 2018 at the Renaissance Hotel in Austin!  The Program Planning Committee and I are already making plans to build an outstanding line-up of presenters and sessions!
If you have not had the chance to check out the presentations from the fall conference, these are posted on the ACET website for your use.

Message from our Executive Director

Greetings Members!
     I hope that all of you enjoyed the awesome ACET Fall conference held in Houston.  It was a great meeting and it was wonderful to see the city rebounding after Hurricane Harvey.
     As you may know, October is the month where we hold our elections.  This year, Vicki Ansley was elected as President-Elect and she will be planning the conferences for next year.  Ray Wilks was re-elected as Treasurer for a two-year term.  Julie McGuire moves to the Past President office and Julia Willett-Weekly is the President.  New Regional Directors were elected for the odd numbered education service center areas.  We are really looking forward to working with all of these individuals this coming year.
   Our Spring Conference will be held in Austin at the Renaissance Hotel on April 10-12, 2018.  Conference registration will open sometime in mid-January.  Please watch for an announcement on the organization’s website Home Page and for an email from ACET.  As in the past, hotel accommodations will be linked to your registration.    As soon as the program planning committee completes an overview of the conference, it will be listed in the conference information.
    We hope that you will be joining us for the next awsome ACET conference in Austin!
Shirley Coleman, Executive Director
