Why Join WA-ACTE?
WA-ACTE is the largest state education association dedicated to the programs and people that prepare youth and adults for successful careers. We are a learning and sharing community of teachers, career guidance specialists and counselors, and administrators at the middle, secondary, and postsecondary levels.

Membership in WA-ACTE provides you with access to programs and services expressly designed for educators in the Career and Technical Education field.

In an age where Career and Technical Education is in question and funding is under political pressure, WA-ACTE plays a leadership role in fighting for the funding and policies that support your schools and classrooms. Your membership is crucial to WA-ACTE's ability to influence education policymakers.
Information to make you a better educator

Quality Networking and Professional Development
The annual Summer Conference, Fall Conference, Legislative Policy Seminar, and other conferences help you interact with other CTE educators, business and institutional partners, and policymakers face to face. As an attendee, you choose from a variety of sessions across a wide range of subjects designed to help you take the most relevant information back to your classroom or office.
Building Career and Technical Education image to enhance your value
Members benefit when their association works year-round to build positive public perceptions about Career and Technical Education on the state level. Image programs like CTE Month, give members access to materials and support to alter perceptions and make the case for CTE in local schools and communities around the state.
