Introduction and Presenter Acceptance

2023 North Carolina Chapter Annual Conference
April 16-18, 2022
New Bern, NC
The True Client. 
In a time when there is so much uncertainty in the world, our work is uniquely focused on created places for students to feel welcome and safe. While the everyday tasks involved in building these places can sometimes dominate our days, it is important we do not lose sight of the end goal – the children who will walk the halls, fill the classrooms, and become part of a community bigger than themselves. These are our True Clients. 
These facilities foster an environment where diversity, equity and inclusion are embraced. Children are taught to care about one another and learn to respect each other’s feelings and choices. Common ground and connections will be
made and found at lunch tables, in afterschool clubs, through music and the arts, and on athletic fields. 
Building learning environments that encourage creativity, support educators and children, foster learning, and spur inspiration in our children’s pursuit of knowledge is our core mission. 
I invite you to join us in New Bern to share ideas, inspire each other and continue to learn about new ways to create learning environments that are fun and engaging for our children, the True Clients. 
See you in New Bern!
We invite you to share your expertise with other industry experts in the field of educational environments. As communities respond to their evolving needs, we ask you to share your lessons, stories and expertise of creating exemplar learning environments.
Please note the sessions are to be educational in nature. Sales, product, or marketing presentations will not be accepted.

Proposals must be submitted by February 10, 2023
