All CTE Opening General Session
Kayleen McCabe’s passion for the trades was put to the test on Rescue Renovation, the DIY Network series she hosted for five seasons. Today, this licensed contractor, sought-after speaker, and winner of DIY’s Stud Finder competition funnels her know-how and innovative spirit toward a more pressing need than outdated wall paneling: Vocational advocacy and awareness. Her non-profit, The McCabe Foundation, tightens America’s skills gap by encouraging young men and women alike to consider careers in our nation’s most undervalued, unfilled, sector: The trades. A familiar face at industry events and in schools across the nation, Kayleen partners exclusively with respected partners including SkillsUSA, ACTE and NCCER. When she’s not knocking down stereotypes or walls, Kayleen caters to a wide array of clients on custom projects ranging from pergolas and decks to furniture and custom storage.

Maximizing the Recruitment and Engagement of Local Industry Partners and Advisory Boards
Your local employers (big and small) want to be engaged in your CTE programs, but . . . they don’t know how. Most often the disconnect between industry and education is that we don’t speak the same language and our goals seem to be misaligned. This session will focus on understanding the practical road blocks to better industry engagement, and most importantly provide a proven methodology to engage with industry on a local level. This in-turn will drive tangible recognition and reward for you, your students, and your CTE programs – All with tools you already have today! Together, we’ll learn best practices on:

1) How to engage local industry partners (big or small) in a very easy, sustainable, and practical way to get their endorsement for your program.

2) How to positively influence school and district administrators, parents, and communities to support your programs.

3) How to better engage your students by strengthening the relationship between their learning, your programs, and industry needs.
