K-ACTE Receives QAS 2014 Award

K-ACTE has once again been awarded the Quality Association Award from ACTE. K-ACTE has won this award each year since 2004. The award will be presented to K-ACTE Leadership at the ACTE Annual Convention called CareerTech VISION on Saturday, November 22 in Nashville, Tenn.

QAS 2014The purpose of the Quality Association Standards (QAS) is to provide benchmarks for state associations to determine levels of performance and satisfactory service to their members and prospective members. QAS should be useful to states in evaluating their basic organization and whether their leadership is providing minimum, average or superior programs for the membership.

This award also signifies a high level of service that the state association delivers to its members as well as the way in which the President and Board advocates for career and technical education in Kansas. This award shows that the association continues to strive for excellence and provides the best leadership for the state association and its members.

ACTE hopes that the QAS will prompt states to challenge themselves to improve and maintain the very best possible organization and leadership for their members within the association’s means. ACTE is committed to assisting state leadership in reaching Association goals.
