The theme for this year's conference is “America's Charter: Past, Present, and Future.” This year, NCoC celebrates the 60th anniversary of our Congressional charter, which charged us to explore the meaning of and find ways to increase active citizenship in America. The event and this celebration will help participants understand the significance of where we've been as a country, the civic reawakening we are experiencing now, and how we carry this revitalized sense of purpose forward.
