We hope to see all of you at the Annual AACTE Meeting in Indianapolis beginning Saturday, March 1. As you select the conference sessions to attend, we want to make sure you are aware that IACTE will have its own designated area during the March 1st AACTE Opening Reception from 5pm to 6pm in the Conference Community Center. You will find IACTE in Booth 100 and Booth 113 with our new IACTE banners and other information. Please stop by! After the reception plan to attend the AACTE After Hours event from 6 – 8pm one floor above the Conference Community Center in the Prefunction space. It will feature a local Indy Jazz DJ, some unique décor, and an art display of work done by Indy artist Doug Arnholter. This will just be the start of a great conference!
Also, plan to attend our Outstanding Future Educator recognition program on Sunday, March 2 at 4:30 in the Marriott Ballroom 9-10, Marriott Downtown. Teresa Meredith, ISTA President, will be offering remarks. We will be honoring both our Outstanding Future Educators and our Teach Grant recipients, along with the winners of our YouTube contest. It will be a great IACTE celebration! We hope to see you there.
The IACTE Executive Committee
IACTE Colleagues –
Attached are the notes from a very informative meeting that we had at Indiana State. ISU was an excellent host to our meeting.
As a follow-up to two items mentioned in the notes, a gentle reminder to each of you that we would like to receive nominations for two openings that we will have on the Executive Committee – an at-large representative and president-elect. Names may be sent to my attention. Second, IACTE did sent a note to Scott Bogan in the Department of Education seeking clarification as to the connections between the recent survey that he sent to each of us and the legislative proposals, HB1388 and SB204. Scott has agreed to meet with the IACTE Executive Committee to discuss these matters. We hope to arrange a meeting around the first week of March. Certainly, we will keep you posted.
IACTE Executive Secretary
