Because of challenges to the sustainability of this event, and to allow as many as possible to attend with limited event funding, we request all faculty to first pursue funding to attend this high quality professional development event with Perkins or other funding available through your college.  The process for professional development funding is different at most colleges.  Contact your local Career Technical Education (CTE) Coordinator and ask about use of Perkins or other funds to support your travel.
