Welcome to our 2017 Conference!

We are excited to host this year’s conference at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro Sunday, July 30 through Tuesday, August 1!  Created by Triad real estate developer Joseph S. Koury in the 1970s, the center has grown to become the largest all-under-one-roof hotel complex between Washington DC and Atlanta.  It is composed of nearly a thousand guest rooms, 250,000 square feet of meeting space, six restaurants and lounges, a nightclub, and the Town Centre shopping mall.

Our theme this year, The Gateway to Charter School Success, is inspired by the fact that Greensboro is nicknamed the “Gate City”.  Its historical role as a major railway hub attracted economic development, particularly in textiles and furniture, to the Piedmont Triad  Throughout the conference we will guide you through the past, the present, and the future gateway of North Carolina’s charter school movement.  We are looking forward to see what this year’s conference will bring!  Hover your cursor over 2017 Conference page to view more details for presenters, sponsors, and attendees in the dropdown.
