Greetings Fellow ACET Members,
I am excited to bring you the latest information about the upcoming ACET Spring Conference, which will be held April 7-9 in Austin.
President-Elect Robert Underwood and the Program Planning Committee have done an outstanding job of putting together a first-class conference for you! The conference is packed with numerous sessions being presented by personnel from TEA, Region 16, and the Texas Homeless Education Office. There will also be a New Director Academy Update being led by Dr. Jamie Bryson of Humble. The first session of the conference will feature Noelle Ellerson, who will give us updates on what is happening in Washington in regards to education funding, laws, and re-authorization. Our featured guest at the Second General Session and Luncheon will be Larry Hutto, who has been a great supporting of the work we do in our profession.
Keeping on track with the recent changes we have been making in our conference, roughly half of the conference is now made up of break-out sessions, where you (the ACET member) have choices regarding which sessions you want to attend. Also, for the first time, ACET has arranged for all conference attendees to have internet access in the conference rooms!
The conference will need volunteers to assist with registration and as facilitators in the sessions. If this is something you would be interested in, please let us know. You can indicate your willingness to assist when you register.
I look forward to seeing you in Austin!
