Receive a Complimentary Registration to 2020 Washington Week: August 31 Deadline

2020 Washington Week

AACTE’s annual Washington Week is a premiere advocacy event for teacher preparation. Teacher educators, students, K-12 representatives, and national education organizations convene each year to discuss current federal and state policies affecting educator preparation. Attendees learn about the latest education trends and receive advocacy training to prepare for Capitol Hill visits to congressional offices, which will take place virtually this year. 

Are you interested in attending this event and receiving a complimentary registration? AACTE members who submit 50% of their dues by August 31 are eligible for a complimentary second registration to 2020 Washington Week. This means if you and a colleague are planning to attend, the second registration is free once your institution submits at least 50% of 2021 membership dues. 

This year’s virtual Washington Week will feature these four unique events:

Holmes Advanced Policy Course: September 2 – 3
This event is for Holmes Scholars who have previously attended the Holmes Policy Institute or are in the final year of their doctoral program.

Holmes Policy Institute: September 8 – 10
The Holmes Policy Institute convenes Holmes scholars, coordinators, and leaders to how to elevate their voice to impact policy for underrepresented minority groups.  

Day on the Hill: September 9 – 10 and September 15 – 16
This year’s event features two tracks of sessions where attendees learn how to strengthen their advocacy skills.

State Leaders Institute: September 22 – 23
AACTE’s State Leaders Institute (SLI) brings state chapter leaders from AACTE and the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) together to review capacity building and how to enhance their chapter’s impact.
