Inclement Weather Policy
All MCB CLE activities scheduled to be held at the Bar & Foundation Center will follow Charlotte-Mecklenburg School closings. If CMS is closed or delayed for both teachers and students, prior to commencement of MCB’s normal business hours opening, MCB will be closed or delayed accordingly. When CMS closes for students, but has an optional teacher workday, MCB will be open. For offsite courses, please contact the scheduled venue directly.
