ROOTS Roundup

by Mindy Theesfeld, Foundation and Analytics Manager

WELCOME to the third edition of ROOTS Roundup, a quarterly newsletter containing information about what's happening at ANFP Headquarters, updates from your Government Affairs Committee, and valuable information you can share with your state chapter and leaders. If there are any topics you would like us to cover in a future issue, please e-mail Mindy Theesfeld.

Craig Brightup, ANFP’s Washington DC Representative, reported to the Government Affairs committee in October on the Licensing Reform in the United States. He explained that model legislation drafted by the American Leg. Exchange Council (ALEC) is the basis for bad state bills confusing state licensing with certification and credentialing and ANFP is following this issue.

Brightup also reported on the Implementation of CTE Legislation and that A DC summit of state and federal officials with employer groups to implement the Careers and Tech. Ed. for the 21st Century Act will not take place November 16 but might happen in December.

ANFP-PAC flyers promoting the new ROOTS campaign have been distributed to chapter presidents along with the PAC Donation Policy and donation form, encouraging volunteers to solicit PAC fundraising at their upcoming state meetings.
