As a Conference Committee we have great news this year! In an effort to maximize the efficiency and the benefits of our professional development delivery system pertaining to Career Technical Education (CTE), the California Career Pathway Consortia welcomes the merger of its 16th annual Educating for Career Conference and of the 22nd annual California Partnership Academies Conference. In addition, we welcome involvement in a variety of venues from the ACSA CTE Council, CACTE, CALCP/CAROCP, and the Successful Practices Network.

Quality professional development opportunities are key components in teacher effectiveness and improving results for all students. This year’s Educating for Careers Collaborating for a Seamless Transition Conference with its more than 125 breakout session opportunities promises to be the place to be for professional development in 2010!
