Join us in Wrightsville Beach for a full slate of seminars on topics which will enrich and advance school design. Colleagues including owners, architects, educators, County Commissioners, and vendors bring valuable and diverse perspectives to our time together. Small-group sessions on critical issues such as site planning, navigating funding mechanisms, collaborating with public entities, addressing the rural/urban divide, and managing energy use will provide opportunities for in-depth discussion. Networking events, tours of historic Wilmington landmarks, and a serene coastal landscape will round out the conference experience as we reconnect with colleagues and friends from across the state.
