Invitation to Conference Sponsors
The Council for Economic Education (CEE), the leading organization in the United States that focuses on the economic and financial education of students from kindergarten through high school, invites you to participate in the 53rd Annual Financial Literacy and Economic Education Conference on October 8–11 in Dallas, Texas. 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. CEE’s 2013 conference had more than 575 attendees, including 260 classroom teachers from 38 states. This year’s conference is hosted by the Texas Council on Economic Education which conducts financial and economic education professional development for K-12 teachers statewide.
The conference features a diverse selection of professional development workshops on economic and financial literacy geared for elementary, middle and high school levels. Topics include pedagogy and resources, curriculum strategy for schools/school districts, teaching strategies, assessment and research, new programs and best practices. In addition to the workshops, outstanding speakers address current economic and financial topics to enable educators to bring these perspectives back to their classrooms. The conference also features special roundtable sessions led by master teachers to discuss shared issues and successes, and informal opportunities for networking.
