CALL FOR PROPOSALS – open January 17 through February 1!


Submit Proposal


We’re looking for charter school educators, leaders, and advocates who dream big to present at the 2019 National Charter Schools Conference (NCSC19), which will take place on June 30-July 3rd in Las Vegas, Nevada! 

Our call for proposals is open January 17 – February 1, 2019. 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.


Did you miss our Call for Proposals Informational Webinar on January 16? Did you attend the webinar but would like to get another look at our slide deck or another listen to our presentation?

  • And much more!
