A note from Nation;

EdNC has received many questions from our audiences about the coming months for community colleges in North Carolina during the COVID-19 crisis.

Our first Awake58 virtual town hall will focus on the decision points facing college leaders, as well as statewide decision makers, about community college funding, the institutional side of CARES funding for post-secondary institutions, and more.

We will convene a 75-minute virtual town hall via Zoom on Monday, June 15 at 3:30 p.m. to get some answers.

Guest speakers include Kandi Deitemeyer, Central Piedmont CC President; Garrett Hinshaw, Catawba Valley CC President; Lawrence Rouse, Pitt CC President; David Baime, Senior VP, Government Relations and Policy Analysis, American Association of Community Colleges.

Registration will end 75 minutes prior to the beginning of the town hall. Please register here: https://bit.ly/awake58townhall
