2018 Communities In Schools Leadership Town Hall

This event has been cancelled. If you have any questions, please contact the event planner directly.

While we continue to monitor the situation, we have concluded that the 2018 Leadership Town Hall CANNOT TAKE PLACE AS PLANNED in Charleston due to the projected impact of Hurricane Florence, whether in the city of Charleston or on travel to and from the Southeastern United States.

Because this annual gathering of our family is so important, our team here at the National office has begun to reimagine the event. Therefore, I would ask that none of you travel to Charleston.

While we work to move our advance team in Charleston out of harm’s way, we ask for your patience as we confirm the rescheduling of this programming.

At this time, we would ask you to please hold - at a minimum - Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. ET to 5:00 p.m. ET and Thursday from 12 noon to 3:00 p.m. ET for virtual programming. We will have a programming announcement as soon as possible with more details. But again, please do not travel to Charleston.

As I said last night, our Leadership Town Hall conference is an important convening of our network. We rely on it to provide updates about our work and to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of our students, staffers, partners and alumni.

On behalf of the entire CIS family, thank you for your understanding. I hope you’ll join me in sending good thoughts to the folks at CIS of Charleston, all affiliates along the Southeastern United States and everyone else in our family who may be impacted by the storm.
