Paul Young Ph.D.,

President of ATEA 2015-2017

Dr. Paul Young, President of Northern Wyoming Community College District 

It is a privilege and an honor to be the President of the American Technical Education Association. Like many of my fellow Board members, ATEA contributed to my professional growth and stability through conferences, networks and the mentoring relationships that form.

As President, I can say with confidence that ATEA is positioned to grow as the nation rebuilds and rediscovers the importance of technical and applied education.  ATEA is among the oldest professional associations in the nation, formed in 1928. We will celebrate our 90th anniversary in 2018.

I invite all technical and applied educators, those who serve, those administer technical, those who supply and those who hire technical and applied education to join ATEA.  As a member you qualify to join ATEA committees; to nominate students, faculty and programs for the ATEA national awards and to serve on the Regional Councils.   ATEA members receive the ATEA Journal and can serve on the ATEA Media Response team. 

Paul Young, Ph.D.

President of ATEA
