Dear ACTEAZ Members,

The school year is half over. Every year just seems to go a little bit faster than the one before it. I hope it has been a productive year and that you have been able to accomplish all that you had planned to do.

2020, it seems impossible that this is the upcoming year. A new decade!

Dear ACTEAZ Members and Friends,

As I think about the significance of Career Technical Education in the time frames of THEN, NOW and BEYOND, I see an imprint of a lifelong significance in our lives and our contributions to education.

Many of us remember the THEN times when we are telling our NOW students, this is not the CTE your parents knew in the old Vocational Education.
