Summer Conference

Each year, Utah Career and Technical Education (CTE) educators from across the state will participate in the Annual CTE Summer Conference. The CTE staff at the Utah State Board of Education (USBE), has worked diligently to deliver high quality professional development for CTE programs. Conferences will be held in various locations across the state. This is the premier opportunity for Utah CTE educators to hear about the latest industry and education trends. Educators will receive hands-on training, important teaching techniques and CTE initiatives that support high quality instruction.
