Success Series: fall 2018 Topics

What is the Success Series day of Professional Development?

Ohio ACTE is dedicated to providing meaningful and relevant professional development workshops for all members. The Success Series workshops connect career-technical educators in a unique opportunity to exchange ideas within their respective occupational fields.

Schools and staff volunteer to host these events, and  Success Series topics are determined by members/career-tech educators need for professional development in the career field they teach.  Click here for more information about becoming a host! 

Organizational staff members (click here to see if your school is an organizational member) attend for just $45 registration fee.  For others, the registration fee is $95.00, includes the cost of the professional development programming and attendees of a Success Series event receive complimentary membership for one year.

A business and industry partnership with our members is vital, and we encourage their sponsorship of these events. Do you have or do business with a local company that would like the opportunity to show their support of career-tech, gain some additional insight from the attendees, and make brief remarks over lunch? Send an email to or click here for all of the details.
