Performance Partnership Summit Overview

Welcome from Performance Partnership Summit

Dear Friends,

Welcome! Your Performance Partnership Advisory Team members have been busy getting ready for the 2017 Performance Partnership Summit. The 2017 Summit is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever. There are 45 sessions to select from. We would like to thank everyone who submitted a presentation proposal. It was very difficult narrowing down the selection to 45. Join us on July 24 and 25 at Embassy Suites in Cary as we unite in our efforts to help every NC student attain his or her educational goal, connect with colleagues, and learn how we can improve performance measures!

We start the Summit off with Dr. James C. "Jimmie" Williamson, NCCCS President, as he presents on July 24, 2017 at 3:45 p.m. On July 25, at 8:30 a.m. the Summit sessions begin. Sessions will end at 3:20 p.m.

The 2017 Summit will include a diverse showcase of presentations focusing on programmatic improvement, data quality, institutional culture change, data-driven decision making, and of course student success strategies.

Come join us! We know you will enjoy the camaraderie of this extraordinary group of professionals who share a passion for helping students to flourish and thrive. We know that you will garner new resources, new ideas, and supportive new friends.

Yours in service to our students across the state,
