2016 Spring Conference In Review

Wow!  What a great turnout for the ACET 2016 Spring Conference.  Thank you ACET members for making our spring conference a big success!  Members from all 20 regions were in attendance and help push the attendance figure to over 650.  The Austin Renaissance Hotel was a great host and everyone seemed to enjoy the meeting room spaces as well as the newly renovated exhibit hall and restaurant spaces.  A big “THANK YOU” goes out to all of our presenters, both general and best practices breakout session speakers who presented very relevant, meaningful, and interesting topics.   As usual, all of the sessions were very well attended.  Our luncheon keynote speaker, Liz Huntley, was absolutely fabulous and of course we really appreciate TEA for sending their best headed up by Anita Villarreal and Cory Green.  Please be sure to check the presentations page on our website to review presentation files that most all of our presenters have made available to us (must be logged in to view these files).  We also appreciate our exhibitors and sponsors 806 Technologies, School Status, and Reasoning Mind who make the special effort to attend our conferences and make their products and services available to our members.

The ACET 2016 Fall Conference will be held in Dallas, October 20-21.  With the many new 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 Dallas in October!

A Letter from ACET President, Gilbert Rodriguez

Welcome and thank you for joining us in this beautiful city of Austin. It is always a pleasure to be able to host the spring conference in our state capital. I am honored to serve the ACET organization as President.  This spring conference theme is “Anticipating Change - Envisioning Tomorrow” so suitable for our current state of affairs in the education field. The Program Planning team has developed an informative program schedule with knowledgeable presenters and distinguished guest speakers that will bring us the latest information on the ESEA reauthorization.

Welcome to the new ACET website:

Welcome from all of us at ACET to our new website!  And while we’re very pleased with the look of our new site it’s “what’s inside the box that counts”.  What makes our new site different about our past sites is that it is hosted and powered by Timberlake Membership Solutions – which is a very good thing for both ACET and our valued members.  If you are affiliated with any other organization that is member-based, you have probably already experienced the benefits like: tracking your membership history, archiving of event attendance, self-generating event invoices, blogging, access to association benefits for members only, just to name a few.   In order for you to be able to establish your membership and begin logging in to the ACET membership portal we have prepared an ACET Membership Login Guide.  Please click here to download the guide.  If you experience any problems with establishing a login, please contact Bernice Troxclair at 832-916-7575 or Ken Schrader at 832-644-5020.  Again, welcome to our new site and we hope you enjoy the experience.
