Breakout Sessions

The call for proposals for the 2018 National Charter Schools Conference will open on January 10, 2018.

We usually host our call for proposals in September but have moved it to January this year. We hope this gives you the time you need to propose sessions that are engaging and speak to the current issues in education! Additionally, this will narrow the window between idea submission and presentation delivery -- a common presenter request.

Call for Proposals Informational Webinar

Join us for an informational webinar on January 10, 2018, at 1 pm ET to learn more about what we're looking for and tips to make your proposal stand out. The webinar will provide:

  • Information about the most requested and needed session topics and formats
  • Tips for putting together an outstanding proposal
  • What NCSC attendees are -- and are not -- looking for in a session
  • And much more!
