Dear Business Leader,

The Howard N Lee Institute for Equity and Opportunity in Education is hosting an inaugural North Carolina Education Summit on September 24, 25 and 26 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. The 2012 Summit is a Call to Action; Raising Achievement and Closing Gaps. This event will provide the first ever historic opportunity for business leaders, faith leaders, non-profit organizations, education leaders, teachers, students and parents to assemble and collaborate on ways to enhance and strengthen the relationship between communities and schools as well as gain insights about how to improve student proficiency and school performance.

I am asking you to consider becoming a sponsor of this first-ever event in North Carolina. Based on early indications of expressed interest, we are expecting between one and two thousand five hundred attendees. The opening day, includes an exciting plenary speaker, a series of focused work sessions and an evening Awards Dinner and Gala, to recognize organizations, individuals, institutions and corporations that have made major contributions to the advancement of education in North Carolina including showcasing outstanding students representing both our secondary (K-12) and post secondary institutions. In addition, this will be a wonderful opportunity for you to highlight contributions your company is making to the enhancement of public education in North Carolina.

During these days the Summit sessions will build on successes already achieved, develop strategies to meet the challenges that lie ahead, and focus on providing participants with tools to return to their respective communities as teams and work to restore their pride in the public school experience for all students.
