The National Charter Schools Conference is the best learning and networking event for charter school educators, leaders, and advocates. This conference is about being part of a movement, learning from the best in the field, and learning from each other. Meeting peers that struggle with the same issues you do – or have solutions to offer you – is an incredible learning experience.
By the numbers: At the 2017 conference, we had more than 4,700 attendees. We hosted 100 breakout sessions, 17 meet-ups, eight charter talks, five networking lounges, three general sessions, two unconference sessions, and one awesome Netflix-themed welcome party!
