Wow! What a great turnout for the ACET 2013 Fall Conference. Thank you ACET members for making this fall conference the best attended since 2009! Members from all 20 regions were in attendance and help push the attendance figure close to 400. Big things really do happen in Dallas! The Sheraton Dallas Hotel was a great host and everyone seemed to enjoy the wide open and diverse meeting room spaces as well as the downtown location. A big “THANK YOU” goes out to all of our presenters both general and best practices concurrent session speakers who presented useful and interesting topics. As usual, all of the sessions were well attended but the big surprise was the New Directors Academy turnout which was over 150 – that’s a lot of new directors in the state! Keynotes by Noelle Ellerson and Doug Medford were very well received and of course we really appreciate TEA for sending their best, Anita Villarreal and Cory Green as well as some new faces to the ACET/federal programs scene, Roger Hingorani and Mark Hernandez. We also appreciate our exhibitors and sponsors who make the special effort to attend our conferences and make their products and services available to our members.
The ACET 2014 Spring Conference will be held in Austin, May 6-8. With the many new anticipated developments affecting federal programs administration in our state, we expect this conference to be one that’s full of new information and one you won’t want to miss. See you in Austin next May!
