Announcing AACTE’s Inaugural Virtual Conference: 2020 Washington Week
After careful consideration, AACTE has decided to transform the 2020 Washington Week conference into its inaugural virtual event. The in-person meeting has been canceled due to our concern about the health, well-being, and safety of our attendees and the coronavirus-related meeting and travel restrictions. We are excited to bring a virtual conference that will center on the same education and connections attendees experience at AACTE face-to-face meetings—from the comfort of your home. Take a moment to review the questions and answers we’ve prepared to acquaint you with this year’s Washington Week conference.
What three key events will take place during Washington Week?
The same events will take place during Washington Week this year: Day on the Hill, State Leaders Institute and the Holmes Policy Institute.
How will the virtual conference connect AACTE members?
Although the meeting will be virtual, the content will be engaging with an opportunity to interact with other participants and speakers during the event.
What is required for attendees to participate in the virtual conference?
The only requirement needed is a laptop or computer to participate. After your registration is complete, a link will be provided for you to join the meeting.
Why should members plan to participate in AACTE’s inaugural virtual conference?
Washington Week offers something for everyone. Day on the Hill provides advocacy and skills to prepare you to conduct meetings virtually with congressional offices. The State Leaders Institute is an opportunity to strengthen the role of the state chapters in being a voice for the profession. The Holmes Policy Institute connects current AACTE Holmes doctoral scholars with leaders in education policy.
