School has begun, the days are getting cooler, the leaves on the trees are turning shades of yellow, orange and red, and high school football is in full swing. All of these things signal the upcoming Fall Leadership Conference for each Utah Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO).

State and chapter officers, we want to hear about your conference and what your CTSO chapter is planning for the year. Send your stories and photos to UtahCTE@schools.utah.gov and we will share them with our online communities—Twitter, Facebook, and via the Utah CTE blog and the CTE Directions newsletter.
If you are not a member of a CTSO, and would like to become a member, talk to your school counselor to get connected with the CTSO advisor in your school.
