2024 Charter Advocacy Summit


Advocacy and action that help YOUR school!

 The charter movement notched big wins at the legislature this year. Understand how new policy changes benefit YOUR school—and what you can do to keep up the momentum.

Join other charter school board members, heads of school, and senior administrators for the Coalition’s 2024 Charter Advocacy Summit! Our 2023 event was a resounding success, with 87 charter schools participating in our kick-off evening reception or Summit. In all, 200 charter operators, stakeholders, industry leaders, and lawmakers attended the reception, while 160 attended the Summit. We expect another very strong turnout in 2024!

Our 2024 event, held at the Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley Hotel, will launch with a wine and appetizer reception on Thursday evening, March 7, followed by the day-long Summit on Friday, March 8. State Superintendent Catherine Truitt is a confirmed speaker and honoree at the evening reception.
