Invitation to Conference Sponsors
The Council for Economic Education (CEE) invites you to participate in the 52nd Annual Financial Literacy and Economic Education Conference. In making a commitment to become a sponsor, your company will receive high profile exposure, and will contribute to philanthropic efforts in support of financial literacy and economic education that will benefit K-12 teachers and students nationwide.
CEE’s conference is a nationwide meeting of K-12 educators, local CEE affiliates from across the country, Federal Reserve partners, and other educators in this field. In 2012, more than 500 top economic educators and industry thought-leaders attended, including 240 classroom teachers from 38 states.
The conference features a diverse selection of professional development workshops on economic and financial literacy including pedagogy and resources, curriculum strategy for schools/school districts, teaching strategies, assessment and research, new programs and best practices. We invite outstanding speakers to address current economic and financial topics to enable educators to raise the levels of economic and financial literacy among K-12 students. The conference also features special roundtable sessions led by master teachers to discuss shared issues and successes, and informal opportunities for networking. In 2013, CEE will introduce new national standards for financial literacy and Common Core alignment of teaching resources.
This year’s conference will be hosted by the Maryland Council on Economic Education, who will be celebrating their 60th Anniversary in bringing quality financial and economic education to Maryland. Download the sponsorship prospectus for more information.
Teacher’s Experience at the 2012 Annual Conference
“I have enjoyed the conference and am truly grateful that I have been afforded this amazing opportunity to change the way my students think about economics. Ultimately I know that I am enriching their lives by teaching them the skills in financial literacy that will help them to be more prepared to enter the real world. I am excited to return to my campus and share the abundance of knowledge received at this conference. Very seldom do we get life-changing experiences, but this weekend has been that for me. I realized that I love economics a lot more that I thought I did!”
