News and Highlights


ACET Fall Conference registration is now open!

The Fall Conference is located in Houston at the Westin Galleria Hotel. The main conference is scheduled for Monday, October 19 and Tuesday, October 20 and for this conference we’ve just recently added a new twist by scheduling the New Directors’ Academy as a Pre-Conference to be held on Sunday, October 18 (there is no extra charge for the New Directors’ Academy preconference). Please note that we have scheduled the New Directors’ Academy for a 2:00pm start time so that most attendees should not need to reserve a room for the night before. We do have a limited number of guest rooms contracted for Saturday, October 17 for our New Directors attendees who live in the far corners of the state.  We ask that if you are not attending the New Directors session that you make your reservations at the Westin for Sunday and Monday night, only. As always, we suggest that before you make your travel plans that you review the conference schedule overview.

In order to register for the conference you will need to first login as a member to the ACET site. If you haven’t already established your login please download a copy of our Login Guide. Once you have logged in as a member on the ACET website you will then be able to register for the Fall Conference. We have created a Registration Guide to assist our members in registering for the conference. Please click on Registration Guide to download your copy of the guide. If you have any problems with either establishing a login or registering for the Fall Conference, please contact ACET Administrative Assistant, Bernice Troxclair at 832-916-7575, or ACET Executive Director, Ken Schrader at 832-644-5020.

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.

2015 Spring Conference: In Review:

THANK YOU ACET MEMBERSHIP!  What a great turnout for the ACET 2015 Spring Conference.  Members from all 20 regions were in attendance and help push the attendance figure to over 650.  A big "THANK YOU!" also goes out to all of our presenters who presented timely and information-packed topics.   As usual, all of the sessions were very well attended.  Keynotes by Noelle Ellerson and Larry Hutto were very well received and of course we really appreciate TEA for sending their best, headed up by Anita Villarreal, Dr. Nora Hancock and Cory Green as well as some new faces to the ACET Conference lineup.  We also want to thank our own Dr. Jamie Bryson and Dr. Robert Meaux for their continued support in providing much needed and much requested information through the New Director's Academy series. We also appreciate our exhibitors who make the special effort to attend our conferences making their products and services available to our members and a special thanks to our Platinum sponsors: Achieve 3000, Curriculum Associates, Educational Technology Learning, Thinking Maps, and 806 Technologies who are awesome supporters of ACET!

The ACET 2015 Fall Conference will be held in Houston, October 19-20, 2015.  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 Houston this coming October!
