A Canyons District administrator has been elected by her peers to serve on the Board of Directors of the nation’s largest advocacy organization for Career and Technical Education.

Canyons’ Career and Technical Education Director Janet Goble, who has been with CSD since its 2009 founding, on July 1, 2015 will assume the post of Administration Division Vice President on the governing board of the Association for Career and Technical Education.

Goble, a former Business Education Specialist for the Utah State Office of Education, says she was “surprised and excited” when told by an ACTE leader that she’d garnered the majority of votes in the association’s recent national elections. Some 4,700 CTE administrators who belong to ACTE were eligible to casts ballots.

“At first, I was, like, ‘Oh, wow. This really happened.’ It really is a dream,” Goble said with a laugh, adding that her family treated her to dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House after they heard the good news. “It’s also a great opportunity to showcase, on a national level, the great things that are happening in our District.”

In the post, Goble will serve as the voice of those administrators in the association, seek to bolster the membership rolls, create opportunities for productive dialogue between education organizations and business leaders, and advocate on local, regional and national levels for continued funding and support of CTE.

Goble, who has served on the Executive Board of the Utah Association of Career and Technical Education, also aims strengthen current relationships with post-secondary officials to ensure that high school principals, program coordinators, and teachers are receiving constant feedback about the CTE offerings in secondary schools. “We need to make sure that what we are doing at the secondary level feeds into and makes sense” for what is offered at the post-secondary level, said Goble.

In addition, Goble, who underwent a rigorous application and interview process in order to be eligible as a national-board candidate, will be tasked with planning and executing the Administration Division sessions for this fall’s national VISION conference, a major professional-development meeting for CTE educators. In addition to smoothing out any logistical wrinkles at the event, Goble says she wants to “make sure the division has meaningful sessions for members to attend during the national conference.” 

“I am excited about (the new position) and the chance to get a national perspective,” she said. “This is will be a good opportunity – and an important professional-development piece for me.”
