American Technical Education Association

From the Executive Director

Welcome to the ATEA website where you will find information and registration links to ATEA professional development programming.  Each fall we hold regional conferences and in the spring a national conference.  ATEA publishes a reviewed ATEA Journal which also is a magazine featuring ATEA members and conference participants.  Join ATEA so you are connected to this outstanding team of technical and occupational educators. Membership is $75 for individuals and $500 for institutions and businesses which give you three emails and addresses for ATEA contacts. There is a new System Level Membership for 100 members.   National conference attendees have a one year complimentary membership.

Follow us on Twitter @ateaonline and click on our Podcasts to experience the conference speakers and panels. There is an ATEA Channel on YouTube with all general sessions from national conferences. ATEA identifies both technology and trends affecting technical education.

Join this outstanding team of professionals who form long term relationships that build their careers whether faculty, deans or presidents--institutional or system leadership.

Best regards,


Dr. Sandra Gehlen Krebsbach
