On Monday afternoon, general interest sessions will focus on successful business partnerships that schools and businesses all over Georgia are engaging in.  There will be sessions of interest for all program areas.  A list of these sessions is on the GACTE website at  In order to accommodate the interests of all conference attendees, you must pre-register for these sessions.  Please be sure to check the list carefully and be sure that you select the sessions that are of most interest to you.  Rooms will be assigned based on the number of participants that choose each session.


This year the sessions on Tuesday will be organized by Pathways and Position Type for those who are not teaching in a pathway (i.e. Work-Based Learning, Counseling and Career Development, Special Populations, and Administrative Leadership).  Please be sure you know which pathway you teach in for the primary part of your day.  You can find a list of Pathways at:

Please do not make a choice for the Awards Banquet on Tuesday night if you do not plan to attend.  Space is limited.  All those ordering a ticket will be accommodated, but if you order a ticket and do not come, you are wasting a meal. Meal options are chicken, roast beef, or vegetarian.


Wednesday morning’s breakfast will be organized by divisions/affiliates.  Please choose the correct division/affiliate if you plan to attend the Wednesday morning breakfast.  If you do not plan to attend, please do not register for a ticket.
