General Information

As the largest Washington state charter convening of the year, the WA Charters annual conference brings together everyone currently engaged in the state’s growing sector in Washington and those seeking to learn more and find a place in the sector.

This event brings together national, regional and local experts and is a great opportunity for charter school leaders, teachers, board members, parents and advocates to network, learn and celebrate the major wins and milestones we’ve achieved together for our growing charter movement in Washington state.

In previous years, more than 300 have gathered to learn, connect and share. This year, the event will include engaging keynote speeches and meaningful programming, covering topics ranging from teaching and learning to policy and law to community/family engagement and advocacy and communications.
