The recording link and PowerPoint are now available for the recent NASDCTEc webinar, The Ins and Outs of Advocating – which was broadcast September 14.
Recent cuts to the Perkins Act and the threat of further cuts to all discretionary programs reinforces the need to let Congress know that CTE programs are vitally important to preparing individuals for careers and turning around the economy.
NASDCTEcâ€™s Public Policy Manager, Nancy Conneely walked through how to be an effective advocate for Perkins and CTE. She shared “while many use the terms â€œlobbyingâ€ and â€œadvocatingâ€ interchangeably, there is a difference. So, even if your state prohibits you from lobbying, there are still things you can do to bring attention to the importance of CTE at a time when it is needed more than ever.”
