Letter from our President-Elect:
Dear ACET Membership:
I just wanted to thank all of those who were able to attend our spring conference and for the feedback given by our members through Regional meetings and conference evaluations. We rely on your feedback as we work to plan our future conferences so thank you, thank you, thank you. Overall, it was a great spring conference with many highlights ranging from a strong TEA presence to show casing our Austin ISD student choir, First Edition, to recognizing our scholarship winners and retirees.
I also wanted to send a reminder to all of you that our next conference is planned for this upcoming fall, October 23-24, 2017, in Houston, Texas. The conference will be at the Houston Galleria Hotel. We are hoping to have registration open in July, so I encourage you to check our site for the upcoming details.
On behalf of ACET, I look forward to seeing you there.

ACET 2017 Spring Conference - Note from our Executive Director
I hope you had the opportunity to attend the 2017 Spring ACET conference in Austin. We had a great conference with over 750 attendees and a strong conference program.
We want to extend our Thanks to Deputy Commissioner for Governance AJ Crabill for his engaging opening session. His speech set the tone for the rest of the conference. We also want to extend our appreciation for the other members of the Texas Education Staff who presented at the conference. As always, the information they bring to the conference is of great benefit to us as we close out this year and prepare for next year.
In addition to the Texas Education Staff, we had the Washington update brought to us by Ms. Noelle Ellerson Ng from AASA and as always she did a wonderful job of keeping us informed about what is happening on the hill.
With 44 presentations offered, we had a wide coverage of most of the areas you direct across the state. Copies of the power points or handouts that have been given to us are posted on this website. If you registered for the conference, please feel free to review the presentations you may have missed utilizing the handouts provided.
If you missed the choir from McCallum High School under the director of Allison Tucker, you truly missed a wonderful presentation. This is an award winning choir and we were privileged to have them with us.
Also, we want to thank our exhibitors for this conference. A list of these exhibitors can be found on the website as well. (www.acetx.org/highlights_sp17)
Other information that you might enjoy reviewing is our list of scholarship winners and the list of retirees which are on the website as well (to be posted soon).
Our next adventure will take us to Houston on October 23rd and 24th. Registration for this conference will open sometime in July so be sure to watch the website for that information.
We hope to see everyone at the Westin Galleria in the Fall!
