National Conference on Citizenship Coming up September 18

The National Conference on Citizenship will hold its annual conference on Monday, September 18, 2006 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Marriott at Metro Center in Washington, DC. The conference will feature the release of the nation’s first Civic Health Index, a rigorous tool to measure civic progress over time. The Civic Health Index is comprised of 40 key civic indicators measuring levels of political activity, civic knowledge, volunteering, trust, philanthropy, and much more. The conference will include civic leaders working to strengthen citizenship in each of the NCoC’s three areas: American history and civics education; community, national, and public service; and civic and political participation. There is no charge for the event and lunch will be served. For more information and to register for the conference go to the National Conference on Citizenship’s website: www.ncoc.net.
