  • Attend the AILACTE Annual Meeting [or send a designee] and participate in the State Representatives Forum

If you accept this invitation, you will receive a reduced registration fee for the annual meeting. The AILACTE Executive Committee views the position of State Representatives as a way to become involved in AILACTE and to allow state member and potential member institutions' voices to be heard as a part of a larger nationally unified organization. As AILACTE institutions with teacher preparation programs, we must be in a position to be sitting at the table with the policy makers and the larger national organizations participating in the gathering instead of being on the menu.
