Hear From Your Peers: Why Attend Annual Meeting?

Year after year, AACTE’s Annual Meeting attracts attendees from around the nation. Read what these past participants have shared about the value of attending:

“You come here and you’re talking to people in the same boat who have to worry about the same things. It’s just been a really good conference.” – Bruce Smith, University of Arkansas at Little Rock

“Anybody that’s interested in education should come. There’s lots of good advice and information that you could use and take back right away.” – Casey Gilewski, University of Memphis

“It’s a great time to really reconnect with others, network, and also hear about the things that are going on in our field that cause a lot of stress—but also the inspirational message.” – Holley Roberts, Georgia College & State University

“A lot of the times when we go to conferences like this, we’re just receiving information and no one is really listening to us. This time, we were allowed to participate and give our views.” – Cora Thompson, Savannah State University

“I liked the dialogue style, I really did, and I thought [the sessions] were very effective.” – John Palmer, Colgate University

“There’s so many options, from standards and CAEP and edTPA to what’s going on in the urban situation . . . there’s almost too many options to choose from!” – Nicole Thompson, University of Memphis

“Not only do we get a breadth of knowledge and information and new ideas, but we to have an opportunity to meet with people and talk to our colleagues.” – Sherwood Thompson, Eastern Kentucky University

“Just the number of people that you meet here—the schools, the institutions—it’s enormous!” – Willys Michel, University of Central Florida
