Virtual State Leaders Institute Convenes EPPs to Address State Policy Challenges

Following up on the highly successful inaugural event last year, AACTE and the Advisory Council of State Representatives (ACSR) are once again sponsoring a highly interactive Virtual State Leaders Institute on Wednesday, November 1 from 12 pm to 5 p.m. ET.

With a low registration fee of $50 per person ($65 for non-AACTE members), anyone active in a state affiliate organization can attend to hear the latest on key state policy issues, connect with and learn from colleagues around the country, and build capacity to advocate on behalf of high-quality educator preparation. 

Here’s what your colleagues have to say about the Virtual State Leaders Institute:

“The Virtual State Leaders Institute further empowered me to find my inner advocacy voice for EPPs and P-12 schools by providing necessary skills when delivering the message. It also provided the opportunity to connect with other state EPP leaders whom I had not met prior thus facilitating a stronger network of EPP advocates.”

Chair, AACTE Government Relations and Advocacy Committee

“The support and personal connections gained through SLI have provided a larger network of people that I can reach out to for assistance and ideas. Knowing we are all working towards a common goal for the general good of education helps build these relationships.” 

April K. Buschelman
Nebraska Association of Colleges for Teacher Education

“This Inaugural Virtual State Leaders Institute was a powerful way to learn about and engage with other state leaders and issues impacting our field. In these contentious times where there can be few growth opportunities focused specifically on teacher education leadership, it was a gift to be able to gather together and learn with and from colleagues.”

Betina Hsieh
California Council on Teacher Education 

Check out the Institute agenda, which this year features sessions on both state policy and state association leadership. Registration is open through October 31.
