CLC practices it’s tag line “Learning for Life” every day. On October 14-17 four staff members were in Charleston, SC to attend the annual Proliteracy Conference. From left to right: Carol McCormick, instructional services coordinator; April King, outreach coordinator; Cathy Weiss, student services coordinator; Debi Lupia, certified trainer and instructor.
The conference in 2015 focused on adult literacy and basic education issues. The event was brimming with speakers and workshops that helped attendees discover new tools and strategies, implement dynamic programming and enhance leadership skills, all while engaging with peers from other literacy organizations of all types and sizes.
The CLC group tweeted these highlights for the #proliteracyconference: discussion with funders panel, importance of digital literacy, and author, poet, former student Earl Mills speaking.
Everyone agreed that they would be bringing lots of new ideas back to New Bern.
