Join an MCAE Committee

Contact us at if you are interested in joining an MCAE Committee.

The Public Policy Committee  is one of the primary ways in which MCAE is the voice of adult education. The committee strategizes and implements an annual advocacy campaign to promote adult basic education appropriations, policy, and legislation that will positively affect adult basic education on both the state and federal levels.

The Awards Committee determines the categories and criteria for recognizing outstanding students, practitioners and leaders in adult education, solicits and reviews nominations, and selects the award recipients.

The NETWORK Conference Committee plans and coordinates all aspects of MCAE’s annual NETWORK Conference for adult education practitioners and students in conjunction with MCAE staff and the Conference Coordinator. NETWORK is the largest adult education conference in New England and an outstanding professional development opportunity for those who work in adult education.

The Membership Committee is focused on improving communication with our current membership and expanding MCAE membership through targeted outreach strategies.
