Dr. Hulett said, “I am extremely excited and honored to be a part of the CEC team. CEC continues to be the single most impactful and influential organization impacting the rights of students with disabilities, and ensuring their access to a free and appropriate public education in the United States today. I can’t think of a more meaningful and significant way to continue my personal and professional mission of protecting the principles of IDEA than being a part of the CEC community.”

He has also served in executive roles and consulted for a multitude of companies including Harcourt Assessment, Pearson Assessment, McGraw Hill, and a number of other corporate entities.
