MACAE believes in the importance of grassroots professional development and sharing of best practices.  To get the most out of your MACAE membership,  consider volunteering for a committee. You will expand your network, stay informed, learn new skills, all while connecting with colleagues and advocating for community and adult education.

We are excited to offer six dynamic working groups: Adult Basic Education/Literacy, Advocacy, Alternative Education, Community Education, High School Equivalency and new this year, Workforce Development made up of practitioners from across the state.
Interested but not sure what it all involves? Each committee:
  • Analyzes statewide data trends and best practices in that particular content area
  • Works to produce innovative programming initiatives
  • Organizes professional development resources and training to support the field
  • Makse recommendations for improved services and outcomes for participants
Committee meetings are held each month at the MACAE Office.  Contact the Communications and Outreach Coordinator at to get involved!
