Hybrid GACTE Summit
July 14, 2021
Letter from the President
The calendar has finally turned to 2021 and I am sure we are all happy to leave 2020 to history. The COVID pandemic has forever altered the lives of all of us in numerous ways. It has, of course, also altered the way the GACTE must operate to meet our mission of providing educational leadership in CTAE. To this end, we have restructured our format for delivering our annual “Summer Conference” for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.
I want every member of GACTE to know that your Board of Directors carefully considered the many variables that were at play; including the great diversity of how our independent school systems are operating in the COVID environment, the likelihood that the COVID vaccine would be widely available by July 2021 and the long-range plan of moving the GACTE Summer Conference into June versus July to better accommodate the school systems who begin their school year in late July. After considerable deliberation, the board voted to move ahead with the “Summer Summit 2021” this July and the normal “GACTE Summer Conference” in June of 2022.
We realize that this course of action may disappoint many of our members as they were looking forward to a full conference this July, but the uncertainty that permeates everything we plan during the times in which we live must be considered. We sincerely hope that you will attend both the “Summer Summit” either in person or virtually and join us in Jekyll Island in June of 2022 for the “Return of the GACTE Summer Conference”.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of our Board Members or Staff if you have any additional questions or concerns. Thank you again for your service and your decision to be a member of the Georgia Association for Career and Technical Education.
