Why Attend AACTE’s 2019 Washington Week?

Every year, AACTE’s Washington Week attracts attendees from all over the nation. “Your Voice Matters” is this year’s theme and will feature three events:

The State Leaders Institute, June 2-3, is for current leaders of AACTE’s state chapters. This program is the forum to discuss important trends in state policies related to educator preparation. Attendees interact with other leaders from across the United States, learning strategies and collaborating to increase their state chapters’ capacity and advocate for the profession.

The Holmes Scholars Summer Policy Institute, June 3, is for current AACTE Holmes Doctoral Scholars. This allows attendees to have an insider experience in the world of education policy. Students will learn about the implications of current policy on research and programming that focus on minority populations.

Day on the Hill, June 4-5, provides advocacy preparation and the opportunity to engage with elected officials and their staff on Capitol Hill. The event includes a full-day orientation where attendees build skills and prepare for conducting meetings with congressional offices. AACTE’s Day on the Hill has something for everyone! Whether you’re a new or a returning advocate, you won’t want to miss it!

AACTE continually grows its event offerings to provide enhanced opportunities for attendees from all these groups to interact as one profession. This year’s Washington Week offers high value for your registration dollars, including not only full-day sessions on the latest tips to advocate for your institution and our profession but also breakfast, lunch, and food and beverage for meeting breaks and evening receptions.
