CTETE members hold their annual meetings in conjunction with the ITEEA annual conferences. Executive sessions and the general business meeting are regularly scheduled conference events. The CTETE offers its own set of peer-reviewed conference sessions targeted toward technology teacher educators, including a research poster session and special interest sessions. In addition, the CTETE co-sponsors, with the Council for Supervisors, the annual Yearbook Dinner, at which the yearbook is introduced and the Technology Teacher Educator of the Year award is announced.

An important function of the CTETE is to provide access to publications that stimulate the professional development of technology teacher educators. Most notable among these is the CTETE Yearbook series, published annually since 1952. Additionally, CTETE members publish the Journal of Technology Education, the premiere juried publication for the technology education profession.

In an effort to promote and recognize excellence in technology teacher education, the CTETE sponsors four awards programs: the Technology Teacher Educator of the Year award, the Outstanding Program Award, the Outstanding Research Award, and the Silvius-Wolansky Award. These award programs are open to all CTETE members.
