Advocacy PreCon in Louisville will focus on “A Return to Discourse”
As you prepare for AACTE’s Annual Meeting, I would like to highlight a new opportunity for attendees— an advocacy preconference! Preconferences happen on Thursday, February 21, and this one is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Join members of the AACTE Committee on Government Relations and Advocacy as well as other colleagues in the field for “A Return to Discourse: A Foundation for Effective Advocacy.”
In this highly interactive preconference, learn and practice the skills necessary to engage with partners and build relationships that will support your advocacy efforts. This precon will approach these skills through the lens of state chapter leadership and building partnerships at the state level, but it is not limited to state chapter leaders. All who wish to return to discourse and engage in advocacy on behalf of the profession are encouraged to attend. Space is limited, register in advance! No walk-ins will be accepted.
Learn active listening skills and employ them as you meet with those with whom you agree and disagree and build advocacy partnerships. These skills translate to your advocating with elected officials and their staff, and even back at the office. You will be practicing in the session, so come ready to engage! This preconference is free for those attending the AACTE Annual Meeting.
