Registration is Now Open for Washington Week 2023
Registration is now open for AACTE 2023 Washington Week, a set of advocacy-focused events held annually in the nation’s capital. Teacher educators and other members from colleges and institutions nationwide are invited to register and attend on June 4 – 7 in Washington, DC.
This legislative conference is designed to enhance member advocacy skills, including Congressional visits, while promoting policies to support educator preparation programs. This year’s national advocacy event for educator preparation, themed “Investing in Education,” will take place at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Virginia, and Capitol Hill.
AACTE’s Washington Week combines the best programming from three separate events — State Leaders Institute, Holmes Policy Institute, and Day on the Hill — into one mini-conference for enhanced collaboration and networking. Register today and book your hotel.
