Our Association would not have a conference without you, and we make that known to our member schools throughout the year.  Thank you so much for supporting North Carolina’s charter schools!


We are excited to host this year’s conference, Anchored to Excellence, at Hotel Ballast, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, in Wilmington, NC Sunday, July 19 to Tuesday, July 21!  Exhibit tables are assigned by sponsorship level with the upper-level sponsors most centrally located on the pre-function floor of the hotel.  Take a look at our new, interactive exhibition map below to help you determine the desired sponsorship level and booth location. There is a limited supply of booths for each level, so we encourage you to register early to maximize the likelihood of securing the desired booth. The definitions of the three main sponsorship levels are as follows:

  • Airlie Gardens Level: Traditional conference sponsorships at $1,550 – 18 tables available
  • Fort Fisher Level: Specialty conference sponsorships between $2,000 and $3,000 – 23 tables available
  • Battleship North Carolina Level: Distinguished conference sponsorships between $4,100 and $10,000 – 16 tables available
See a detailed list of sponsorships options by downloading our full Sponsorship Opportunities.


Registering to sponsor our conference is easy! If your company / organization sponsored our conference in 2017, 2018, or 2019, just select your company / organization and the information on file will appear in the registration form! The form also auto-populates the membership status of Association business members. As registrations are submitted, Corporate Leaders will be assigned tables first followed by Business Partners then non-members. Also, be sure to see the exhibitor map below.


All sponsorships include participation in conference activities and a unique opportunity to connect with our state’s charter school sector. Association memberships are automatically included in Battleship North Carolina Level sponsorships. However, companies are still allowed to sponsor without Association membership.
