The National Conference on Citizenship is an annual event that focuses on the state of civic engagement in America, and brings together civic leaders, educators, CEOs, and representatives from each branch of government to address issues related to our nation’s civic health.
The theme for this year’s Conference is “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs: Exploring the link between civic engagement and employment.” The Conference will showcase and present new research and programs that explore the role all types of civic engagement play in creating thriving communities. This includes announcement of the winners of the first-ever Civic Data Challenge, and highlight of a new corporate citizenship initiative called The Civic 100, which explores how businesses make a difference in communities. NCoC will also present its annual awards and conduct a “Sworn Again American“ ceremony. More information is available at NCoC.net/conference.
The Conference will be streamed live beginning at 1 p.m. Eastern until 5:30 p.m. Eastern. During this time, questions will be taken via Twitter and U-Stream chat from online participants to ask during the event. The official conference hashtag is #NCoC.
