The Alliance of North Carolina Black Elected Officials (ANCBEO) will hold its 13th Annual NC Black Summit on April 19-20, 2018 at the Hilton Garden Inn Crabtree Valley, 3912 Arrow Drive, Raleigh, NC 27612. This year’s theme Beyond OUR Limits provides a platform for attendees to engage in thoughtful conversations regarding leadership, infrastructure and economic development opportunities that would enhance local communities.

This event has grown to become one of the most important gatherings in the state to discuss issues of importance to the African-American community. Nearly 300 of the state’s leading black elected officials, advocates and community members gather to discuss the many issues facing our communities such as economic development, voting rights, education, healthcare and public safety. These discussions are meant to aid the development of proactive solutions that participants implement in their communities to encourage constructive policy dialogue and foster positive change.
