NACCE’s Entrepreneurial College In Action Competition, powered by The Coleman Foundation
The opportunity to secure funds to support your work in entrepreneurship at NACCE2014 is now closed. For information on this opportunity, see the information below.
We know finding the funding to attend high-impact, deep-learning events – like NACCE's Annual Conference – can be a challenge. We recently asked several members how they've leveraged special programs to support their professional development.
Christine Mollenkopf-Pigsley, NACCE's online training instructor, reminds us that professional development is
one of the nine federally required components for Perkins IV Funds. To cite the federal requirements, funds must be
set aside to:
in-service and pre-service professional development programs to teachers,
faculty, administrators, and career guidance and academic counselors who are
involved in integrated CTE programs. Topics include effective integration of
academics and CTE effective teaching skills based on research, effective
practices to improve parental and community involvement, effective use of
scientifically based research and data to improve instruction.
Other members have included travel and registration in successfully funded Department of Labor TAACCCT proposals. And have attributed the information they gained at the conference – along with the overwhelming amount of support and guidance from fellow attendees – to their ability to rapidly launch entrepreneurial programming as part of their overall projects.
So bring a team to NACCE2014 this October
12-15 in Phoenix, Arizona, where you'll have access to cutting-edge information
on infusing entrepreneurship into existing programs and aligning your curriculum
with industry sectors.

Annual Conference as professional development for other programs? Post your
