The California Charter Schools Conference is the ONLY place to reach decision-making California charter school leaders on a large scale. It offers an opportunity for face-to-face marketing like none other, as the California Charter Schools Conference is the only show exclusively serving charter schools in the state that contains 20% of the nationwide charter school market.
