We got a makeover!

What's behind the new logo? The quotation marks represent the conversation and communication amongst NCPC members, as well as the dialogue created between artist and audience. The symbol also has subtle shapes of "p" and "c" for Presenters Consortium. Finally, the green and blue(ish) represent the mountains and coast of NC.

Our new look reflects the vibrancy of this organization and prepares us for a dynamic future. And we're excited to share that future with you!
