The main conference events taking place September 17 from 9 am - 1 pm ET will be live-streamed. Just check back here during that time and catch the action in the video player below.
NCoC brings together 400 civic leaders, educators, CEOs, and representatives from government to address issues related to our nation’s civic health. This year's Conference will explore the powerful role civic innovators are playing in fostering societies that are informed, engaged, giving and trusting. Make sure you tune in to catch some of these highlights:
- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will participate in a keynote conversation.
- TIME Magazine Managing Editor Rick Stengel will receive the “Citizen of the Year” award .
- A discussion on how institutions are supporting citizen-driven solutions, including Karen Baker (Secretary of Service and Volunteerism), Elliot Schrage (Vice President of Global Communications, Marketing and Public Policy of Facebook), and Judy Woodruff (Senior Correspondent of PBS NewsHour) to name a few.
- A discussion of the “Civic Health Assessment,” produced for the first time in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service.
- Chief Judge Royce Lamberth will perform a naturalization ceremony welcoming America’s newest citizens.
The Case Foundation is excited to be a sponsor of this year's conference. Today, we will be at the Newseum for a day or pre-conference discussions on how citizen-centered solutions and cross-sector engagement can impact big citizenship. Our CEO, Jean Case, will be leading a discussion on lessons learned from the relationship between the administration and corporate/private foundations. Since these events won't be live-streamed, we will do our best to keep you informed and involved by tweeting from the conference, using the hashtag #NCoC, and blog posts to come. So, make sure to check back for updates.
