ACPE, the Association for Computer Professionals in Education, was established in 1965 and incorporated in 1985. Since its founding, ACPE shares information designed for its members to promote general recognition of the role of IT professionals in education; improve network and computer services; integrate emerging technologies; encourage appropriate use of information technology for the improvement of education; and, support standards whereby common interchanges of electronic information are efficient and effective.
Through annual conferences for its members and other outreach efforts, ACPE has continuously served the Pacific Northwest’s education community since 1965. For over 50 years, ACPE has provided technology professionals in pre-kindergarten through post-secondary education unique opportunities to share ideas, techniques, and practices in environments that foster long-lasting relationships among its members. ACPE’s primary means to its goals is an annual conference for its members. At these events, ACPE provides an interactive and engaging forum for education technology professionals to share knowledge and skills on best practices, emerging trends, and technologies pertinent to serving and supporting the PreK-20 environment. ACPE serves education’s IT professionals in Oregon and Washington. We are an affiliate of International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and the Consortium of School Networking (CoSN).
