The Annual Conference on Citizenship began in 1946. Congress and the President enshrined the Conference into law when they “chartered” NCoC in 1953. Since then, NCoC has sought to bring together people from every sector of society and every region of the country to – inform, enable, and inspire others to take action.

Today, we are leading the charge on Civic Renewal!

Are you concerned about civic life in America? Are you frustrated by fractured communities and divisive politics? Do you feel we can do better?

Then join fellow citizens, government leaders, and innovative entrepreneurs who are working to design and support engaged and resilient communities by participating in the annual convening of the National Conference on Citizenship, October 13-14, 2016 in Washington, DC.

This year’s Annual Conference is a part of NCoC’s Civic Renewal Initiative.

How can we meet this moment in ways that inspire deep, diverse, sustainable civic participation in all its forms and from all segments of society? An immediate and robust effort is needed! One that can renew our sense of shared values and responsibilities as American citizens-renewal that is partly about personal responsibility and partly about collective opportunity.

At the core of our effort is the belief that every person has the ability to help their community and country thrive. With a focus on equity, diversity and inclusion, our pathway forward builds on the work of the Civic Health Index network as described in our Roadmap for Change.
