Publications, products and web site. (Annual Report: Fiscal Year 2001).

ACTE's newsletter, Career Tech Update, was launched in August of 2000. Combining the best elements of our two previous newsletters, Career Tech Update is published twice monthly (except once in August and December). The content combines the timely news aspects of the previous weekly newsletter with the more analytical and legislative content of the monthly. CTU has enjoyed an enthusiastic reception from readers, and ACTE is now working to expand awareness of the newsletter among a broader audience of our members. It is expected that increased legislative activity in preparation for Perkins reauthorization will spark new interest in this excellent source of education news and information.

Techniques magazine continues to be the leading source of information on the world of career and technical education. The editors are always receptive to article idea submissions from ACTE members, since providing information on best practices and new programs is a key purpose of the magazine.

ACTE's redesigned Web site,, was developed in a partnership with an education information provider, EdGate. With its expanded capacity and improved navigability, the site has attracted a steady increase in visits from ACTE members. They now rely on the site for up-to-date division and region news, division newsletters, membership information and convention registration and program schedules. In the near future, the site will offer a members-only area that will offer online membership enrollment and renewal, enhanced automated convention registration, and an online store for purchasing ACTE books, brochures, and Career & Technical Education Week products.

The theme for the 2001 Career & Technical Education Week observance was "Want Career Success? Get Career Skills!" A full range of promotional items, including travel cups, t-shirts, banners, mouse pads and more, was well received by schools all over America. Detailed information of this annual February celebration, along with a promotional kit with instructions on planning events, is always available on ACTE's Web site.
