New CTSO Website

As we celebrate the final week of CTE Month across the nation, SkillsUSA is pleased to announce
the rollout of an exciting new website. This site was created in cooperation with
all the national Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) through the National
Coordinating Council for Career and Technical Student Organizations (NCCCTSO)
and our affiliate organizations: The Association for Career and Technical Education
(ACTE), National Association of State Directors of Career and Technical Education
Consortium (NASDCTEc) and the National Association of Secondary School Principals
(NASSP).

The website links to all CTSOs and affiliate organizations, provides the latest CTE news
feed, links to our social networks and provides several data points that support the case
for CTSOs as a key component of high quality Career and Technical Education. One of
the most dynamic features of the website appears under the “Advocate” header. This link
provides CTSO profiles for every state and shows the number of CTSO members in each
legislative district for every state. This is a great tool for state legislative visits and for making
the case for CTE at the local, state and federal levels.

We hope you will find this site useful not only an advocacy tool, but also as a marketing
and branding tool. The process to develop this website was done with an incredible cooperative
spirit amongst all the CTSOs and affiliate organizations. It offers another way to
celebrate the goodness of CTE! Visit the site at http://www.ctsos.org
