State Affiliates

AACTE collaborates with state educator preparation organizations to strengthen collective advocacy efforts, share experience and expertise, and expand members’ professional development opportunities. AACTE’s relationship with these organizations is a voluntary mutual affiliation that advances members’ interests.

The presidents or designated liaisons from state organizations comprise the Advisory Council of State Representatives (ACSR), which serves as an advisory committee to the AACTE Board of Directors on state issues and facilitates collaboration among state organizations and between those groups and AACTE. The members of ACSR elect an executive committee that is responsible for planning and leading ACSR meetings, including the ACSR Business Meeting at the AACTE Annual Meeting and the State Leaders Institute during Washington Week. ACSR is led by an Executive Committee.

In recognition that state affiliate organizations are busier than ever responding to — and shaping — state policies, AACTE and the ACSR Executive Committee are hosting a first-ever Fall State Leaders Institute. Leaders of state organizations can catch up on the latest information about state policy developments and share advocacy plans, activities, and resources with their colleagues from around the country.

This half-day, virtual workshop will feature presentations on major policy issues impacting educator preparation, with plenty of dedicated time for cross-state discussion and sharing of resources and strategies.

Registration fee is $50 per person and virtual format will enable multiple leaders from each state organization to attend. Register today.
