2019 Midwinter Conference


Call for Presentations

The Midwinter Leadership Conference is held each year to give CTE Administrators, Counselors and Teachers the opportunity to connect, develop leaderships skills, and learn about topics, such as, current issues, funding, advocacy and data research.  It is also an opportunity to learn best practices on educating your school boards, peers, and students’ parents on what Career and Technical Education is and how it not only benefits the futures of our students, but also the future of Arizona and beyond.  Participants will also learn more about developing and sustaining the incredibly important partnerships we have with Post-Secondary Institutions and Industry.  Be sure to join us as we look at CTE as it is today, but also as we begin to prepare for the Possibilities of CTE’s Tomorrow.
