AACTE Day on the Hill to Offer Expanded Orientation, Ample Opportunities for Advocacy

AACTE’s Day on the Hill is just around the corner, offering plenty of opportunities for members to improve and apply their advocacy skills during our 2016 Washington Week. Please join us June 7-8 in the nation’s capital!

For the first time ever, the Day on the Hill orientation will feature a full day of activities designed to increase your advocacy capacity both in Washington, DC, and at home. Together with other AACTE members from around the country, you will learn how the Association collaborates with colleague organizations in Washington to drive the narrative on teacher preparation, hear from reporters with national news outlets about how to cultivate your relationship with the media, and develop strategies to build and grow relationships back home with district office congressional staff.

There’s still time to register and plan your trip to Washington, DC! Registration is available online as well as on site at the event hotel (for the same rate!). And while our Crystal Gateway Marriott room block is booked, AACTE event staff are happy to provide you with information on hotels a short distance away (please contact events@aacte.org for assistance).

For questions on AACTE’s Day on the Hill, contact me at zvanhouten@aacte.org or AACTE Director of Government Relations Deborah Koolbeck at dkoolbeck@aacte.org.
