State Director Meetings

Each year the Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education's Division of Adult Education and Literacy sponsors the following training opportunities and workshops targeted specifically to state directors of adult education and other key state staff:

  • Annual Meeting of State Directors of Adult Education - The three-day conference hosts state directors from across the nation each year.

  • New State Directors Management Workshop (Fall) - This three-day workshop is geared towards newly appointed state directors of adult education and other appropriate state staff. The workshop strives to: (1) Enhance new State directors' knowledge of program requirements and other key components and the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA) and applicable formula grants administration requirements from the Education Department regulations and Uniform Guidance, (2) Provide new State directors with the resources and tools needed to effectively manage day-to-day State-level adult education operations consistent with federal law and relevant regulations, and (3) Facilitate development of mentoring relationships among experienced and new State directors and foster networking relationships among new directors who share similar experiences.
