Greetings ACET Members and Guests!

We are thrilled to welcome all of you back to our first in-person conference experience since 2019!  Being apart the last two years, we learned just how resilient our organization and its members truly are.  Through it all, ACET remained dedicated to meeting our goal of providing timely professional development that will impact and shape the lives of young people for a lifetime.

Our members have inspired our spring conference theme, “Agents of Change in Evolving Times.”  During some of the most difficult and challenging times of our lives, we have pivoted in ways that have changed our daily routines, and mindsets.  We’ve discovered just how creative we really are when faced with tough challenges.

Gathering together in San Marcos will give us a chance to share outside-of-the-box ideas for evolving times.  Think about what being an agent of change means for you.  Share your thoughts via Twitter.  Be sure to tag us @ ACETxorg.  I look forward to seeing you in San Marcos!


Deon Quinn, ACET President

Greetings ACET Members!

We are excited to be getting ready for the fall conference to be held in Corpus Christi October 18-21, 2922.

Our theme for this year is Waves of Change: It Starts with Us.  We hope that you will join us as we move forward with making changes that will help move the students we serve forward in their educational endeavors.   There will be a variety of topics presented and as always, we will conclude our conference with updates from Cory Green.

The pre-conference on October 18th is designed to assist new program directors prepare for their work in Federal/State Programs.  We hope you will plan to attend this extra day as it always proves to be worthwhile for our new directors.

This conference, the President’s Give Back program will focus on assisting the Food Bank in Corpus with donations which they greatly need.  Many of the students we work with are impacted by the ability of their parents to receive much needed supplementary food items.  Deon Quinn, our President, is asking that we assist the program by bringing food items such as pasta, cereal, peanut butter, rice, etc.  The food bank also asked for things such as canned fruit, but we know this will be difficult to travel with, canned goods,  but is easy for us to include a package of dried foods in our suitcases, so please consider bringing something to share.

Again, we are looking forward to seeing you in Corpus Christi as Waves of Change: It Starts With Us is a true statement.
