Register for November 2018 Federal Update Webinar

With the election over, Congress returns to Washington, D.C. to wrap up the year—and for some members, their time in Washington. As the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate start the lame-duck session, some attention is turning to the 116th Congress that begins in January.

With Congress finishing the Labor, Health & Human Services, Education and Related Agencies appropriations bill on time (September 30), it is important to remember that a large portion of the federal government is operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR). With a deadline of December 7, the CR brings with it contention and the potential for a government shutdown. It is also unclear what else the Republican majority will want to do in the last weeks of its leadership in the House and what the Senate can get done as well.

Yet there is still much to discuss that impacts education and educator preparation. Join me for the AACTE November 2018 Federal Update webinar. These member-exclusive webinars are offered each month that Congress is in session. This webinar is being offered twice, on different days and times to accommodate time zones and teaching schedules. It also will be recorded and posted on the federal page of the AACTE Advocacy Center.

Join in and learn what’s unfolding in Washington D.C., and find out what advocacy steps you can take to engage in our democracy. Don’t forget to bring your questions—a Q & A session will take place at the end of the presentation. Register today!

Tuesday, November 27, 5:00 -6:00 p.m. EST

Wednesday, November 28, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EST
