Win a FREE Family Registration to the 2015 NCHE Conference!

Can you feel the excitement?! It's almost time for the 2015 NCHE Thrive Conference! Homeschoolers here in North Carolina are gearing up for another great homeschool conference taking place May 21-23 at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem, NC.

I've lost count of how many conferences I've attended, but I CAN tell you that every year I leave feeling that it was the best conference EVER!

I'm sure this year will be just the same!

2015 NCHE Thrive Conference

Here is some information from NCHE about this year's conference:

The NCHE annual conference serves as a celebration of the multi-faceted face of home education in North Carolina. This year we introduce a new name for our conference: Thrive! The NCHE Homeschool Conference. This new name reflects the goal of the NCHE conference and mirrors the NCHE mission "NCHE has a vision for flourishing families and thriving generations in which people remain passionate, curious and actively engaged in their faith and in their learning..."

Our mission is to:

  • Equip and encourage homeschooling families through an abundance of outstanding speakers and workshops
  • Connect homeschoolers with quality curriculum resources through our extensive vendor hall
  • Celebrate our teens and alums through special workshops, fun activities, fellowship, the talent showcase and our state-wide graduation
  • Encourage our leaders with a special luncheon and a workshop just for them
