2018-19 Adviser Forum East has ended
**Reminders: Please bring a notebook and pen to every session, and wear your CAC name badge at all times.**

Dear CAC family,

Welcome to our Adviser Forum East in New York City! We are thrilled to have you here in the Big Apple and are grateful to our host chapter, the awesome NYU Corps!

Our theme this year goes to the heart of CAC’s mission -- Advancing Opportunity. The goal over the next few days is to recommit ourselves to advancing opportunity in various ways. We hope you will discover best practices from your peers, engage with the research, reflect on your journey and what may lie ahead by interacting with the alumni panel and industry workshops, and be inspired by our guest speakers whose stories capture in powerful ways the journey to advancing opportunity.

On behalf of our national team and Board of Directors, we are grateful for the work that each of you — 716 advisers serving 210,000 students in 16 states across the country — do every day. We continue to build a national movement at a critical time in our nation’s history. Let us commit to ensuring every student hears those four key words, “I believe in you” and, together, we advance opportunity.

It is an honor to serve with you!

Angie Brice

Teach For America
Managing Director of Recruitment & Executive Director Fellow
Angie’s passion for educational equity and systemic change led her to join Teach For America as a 2007 Houston corps member, shortly after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As 5th grade teacher in Houston, TX, she was inspired by her students’ determination to excel in spite of tremendous challenges. She felt privileged to fight alongside them and led them to tremendous academic and community gains over the course of two years. Since then, she’s served in numerous roles on Teach For America’s Recruitment Team, leading their efforts in parts of the east coast. As Managing Director for the past 5.5 years, Angie has led teams to recruit over 2,000 admitted corps members for TFA – with over 50% identifying as people of color or from a low-income background – to serve in K-12 classrooms across the nation. Last year, she completed the Executive Director Fellowship at TFA, a rigorous learning experience that prepares senior leaders to lead a TFA region. Having recruited the most corps members of color in TFA’s recent history, Angie co-presented her diversity recruitment expertise at Harvard Graduate School of Education’s 16th Annual Alumni of Color Conference last spring. Fueled by local-global impact, Angie helped launch Anseye Pou Ayiti (Teach For Haiti) in 2014, and currently serves on the Board of Trustees for a charter network that serves 2,000 students in central Brooklyn. On any given week-end, you’d likely find Angie at a frítaj pikliz (and loud) dinner table with her extended Haitian-American family. Angie lives in Brooklyn, NY, with her hubby, Kenson, and their toddler, Bella.
