Dear North Carolina School Counselors,

Mark your calendars now for the North Carolina School Counselor Association’s 2017 Conference! We are pleased to announce the conference webpage is now launched!

We’re in the midst of planning for the upcoming conference, which is being held once again at the beautiful Sheraton Hotel and Koury Convention Center in Greensboro from November 8-10, 2017. This is a conference for school counselors, organized and developed by school counselors! Registration is now open…visit the conference webpage to find out how to sign up today! Also, please note that if you are a NCSCA member, you save more on your conference registration fees than the cost of membership! Click on the membership link on the conference webpage to join or renew your membership today!

The Board and officers of the association are working hard to create an exciting conference, featuring nationally recognized speakers and our very own talented NC school counselors! 

Also, the conference room block is open at the Sheraton Hotel. The block fills rapidly, so reserve a room now if you’re planning to attend the conference and will need one! You can follow the link in the “Accommodations” section on the conference webpage to the hotel’s reservation system for the conference room block…and the special low rate of just $138 per night!

We hope to see many of you in November!
