    Annual Confernce 2014The Arc has always been a grassroots, member-driven organization. At The Arc of North Carolina’s 2014 Conference, that grassroots legacy will be alive and on display through the Membership Meeting and Town Hall General Session.

    The Membership Meeting and Town Hall, scheduled for the conference’s second day (Saturday, October 10th) at 9:00 AM, will serve both as a formal business meeting and an informal way for advocates from all walks of life to connect with one another, as well as with The Arc staff.  Last year’s Membership Meeting and Town Hall was standing room only, so this year’s meeting will be a general session, with no competing sessions occurring at the same time.

This includes guardianship services, child care and supported employment.
