CEE at the RNC: In Spite of Hurricane Isaac, Still Making a Splash

POSTED: August 31, 2012 | BY: kwilliams | TAGS: , ,

Moving into peak election season, the Council for Economic Education decided to head down South for the Republican and Democratic Conventions, asking two separate panels to address the same issue: “Financial Literacy: Is Your State Part of the Problem—Or the Solution?”  While we’re still on track for Tuesday’s policy luncheon in Charlotte, Hurricane Isaac had other plans for us this past Monday, forcing us to call off our Tampa event.

Despite the cancellation, we still made it onto the media’s radar.  In Bloomberg Businessweek’s “The Art of Going Corporate at Political Conventions,” reporter Diane Brady made a special note of the bipartisan nature of our events. The Non Profit Quarterly also took notice of our (intended) presence and what we would have addressed in Tampa, had weather been on our side.
