Your voice, the strong, unified voice of those in the equipment distribution industry, is one of the most (if not the most) important aspects of success in our government affairs program. Your story, and how you convey it, is exactly what the U.S. senators and representatives want to hear to know how certain laws will affect your community and your company. Therefore, we need your help with the Perkins V law.
AED members must begin the engagement process immediately to ensure states are targeting CTE resources to diesel technician training programs. The next four years of each state’s CTE funding priorities will be memorialized in its plan. To begin the engagement process, visit aedfoundation.org/perkins-v-engagement-process/
and follow the steps to draft your email to your state CTE director, seeking information on how you can participate in the process.
The AED Foundation is also looking for one or more AED member companies from each state to serve as leaders for their respective states during the Perkins V stakeholder engagement process. If you’re interested, visit the webpage above to find the form to provide your contact information following submission of the letter to your state’s CTE director.
This law will surely help in the efforts to create a stronger, more stable industry for the future, but we also need your help to see this success through. Please get involved with our government affairs program today.
If you have any questions about the Perkins V engagement process, please contact The AED Foundation’s Associate Director of Development and Workforce, Marty McCormack, at
