Annual Events

Peace Prize Award Ceremony

NCPCA is proud to present the North Carolina Peace Prize every spring to honor a small NC, community-based nonprofit group that honors the value of the Peace Corps. We have been issuing this prize and bringing attention to organizations serving our communities since 1999. See our Peace Prize webpage here for information on past winners, and to stay up to date on the next call for nominations.

Fall Family Picnic

Our annual fall picnic is a highlight of the year, bringing together RPCVs and others to share foods from around the world, swap stories and make new friends. All RPCVs and guests, kids, nominees, and prospective PCVs are welcome. Check the Events Calendar for 2024 details.

Recent events have been held at Beech Shelter at Lake Crabtree Park in early October, but check the Calendar for the most up to date details and to RSVP. We’ll provide cups, cutlery, and bottled water. Alcoholic beverages are not allowed (park rules). We look forward to seeing you!

Annual Meeting and Holiday Party

You really shouldn’t miss our Annual Holiday Party! All NCPCA dues-paying members are invited to attend our annual holiday celebration in December. We typically have a wonderful potluck with a vast array of dishes. It’s BYOB, too!  See our events calendar for details.

All NCPCA members will receive separate invitations with all the event details and address. If you’re not yet a NCPCA member, now is a great time to join! See our Membership page for details. We also elect officers for the coming year at this event,  review the activities of the year, and preview events to come. If you are interested in serving on the Steering Committee, please let us know.
