Greetings ACET Members and Guests!

It is an honor to serve as the President of ACET during some of the most unique and challenging times in education.  I am inspired by stories from our members who continue to put the needs of students first in the safest way possible.  You are recognized and have my deepest gratitude.

It is exciting to know that progress is being made and brighter days are ahead.  As President, I look forward to working with our officers and various committees to grow our membership, create new opportunities to provide support and resources for our members, and ensure we remain dedicated to meeting the needs of students throughout the state of Texas.

ACET has always been a voice that champions the priorities of students, but that voice is impossible without input.  As a member of ACET, I invite you to share your thoughts, and ideas on ways we can continue to meet your needs during these unprecedented times.  Our students deserve our very best efforts that will inspire them to advance their dreams and change the world.  Together, we can and will be better for their sake.


Deon Quinn, ACET President

Greetings ACET Members:

Once again, we had a very successful meeting using our virtual format.   The Program Planning Committee under the leadership of Deon Quinn had a wide variety of topics and according to the reviews submitted, everyone was pleased with the variety and quality of the presentations.

A special Thank You also goes out to those members who presented at the pre-conference session.  It was attended by approximately half of those registering for the conference---over 300 people. It was a great review for those of you who have worked in federal programs and for those of you new to your jobs, it was a wonderful overview of some of the most important topics you will encounter in your new position.

The Spring conference will be held face-to-face in San Marcos  beginning April 26th (pre-conference if held) to April 29.  As always, April 29th will likely be a half-day session with Cory Green.

The Program Planning Committee will be planning the conference shortly and information will be posted on the website as it becomes available.  The registration opening date and hotel reservation opening will be announced on the website as well.   Until you receive a Constant Contact notice or find it on the website, you will not be able to register or book a room at the hotel.  LOOK FOR INFORMATION IN JANUARY.

Just a reminder, videos of all the presentations are available through the Whova app for 6 months.  Handouts that have been provided are also there under documents.  If there are no documents there for the session you are interested in, that means the presenter did not provide them.

We will be looking forward to seeing you in San Marcos where Catherine Eubanks and her Program Planning Committee will provide you another great conference!

Shirley Coleman, Executive Director ACET
