The Carolinas Secular Conference is organized to provide a ground for learning and sharing, bringing in speakers to inform and train, as well as awarding grass roots achievement by individuals across North and South Carolina. Attendees will join in a live network of planning to meet the challenges of the next year and the coming decade. A centerpiece will be the Carolinas Freethinker Banquet, which has become “the” freethought social event of the year in the Carolinas with its fine food, exciting speakers, and high-profile award ceremonies, including the presentation of the Carolinas Freethinker of the Year Award.

Beyond its role as a working event, the Carolinas Secular Conference aims to be a joyous celebration of the growing secular movement and culture and an opportunity for nontheists of all stripes to make new friends across the region.

We’ll see you in September. A community grows when individuals of vision come together for a meeting of minds among friends. And a movement grows when more and more people come and take part.
