13 State Officers from 7 of 8 CTSO's in Washington State sat for the WAVA Fall Conference student panel presentation October 9, 2013 in Wenatchee, WA. Each participant told their CTE experience to the Washington State Vocational Administrators. The presentation was before the entire group of administrators and was well received. Questions were directed for the students to supply critical information to CTE administrators to help improve programs throughout the state. State Officers were treated to lunch following the presentation. These CTSO group gatherings continue to be an important part of each CTSO as each group strengthens the other by working together as a group and socializing together as a group. What a fabulous day!
