Special Registration Discounts Broaden Access to AACTE Annual Meeting

Did you know AACTE offers special registration discounts for not only members but also “first-timers,” students, and PK-12 partners to attend the 2018 Annual Meeting? Now is a great time to think about inviting these groups to join us in Baltimore, Maryland, and save even more by registering before the Early Bird deadline of October 18.

Our Emerging Leader discount is meant for those members who are “first timers” and new to the profession. Dozens of junior faculty take advantage of this offering each year, which gets them full access to the conference at more than 60% off the regular member price. Eligible faculty/administrators have worked in higher education for 5 or fewer years and have never been to AACTE’s Annual Meeting before. Special requirements: The Chief Representative from your institution must designate Emerging Leaders (a maximum of three individuals) in our online registration system, after which those individuals may register at the discount. But don’t wait – this rate is not available on site in Baltimore!

Students are a very important part of our membership, and we encourage them to attend to learn, share their perspectives, and engage as developing members of the profession. The discounted student rate applies to all students – graduate, undergraduate, even high school – as long as they have a valid student ID when they come to our registration desk in Baltimore.

AACTE members have important relationships with their PK-12 partners, and the Annual Meeting is a great place to continue to foster those connections by learning together. Attendees who are primarily employed by school districts and have an active partnership program with a school, college, or department of education are welcome to attend at the reduced PK-12 partner rate.

See how much can be saved in the table below!
