Calling All Teachers: Join the Council for Economic Education For 53rd Annual Financial and Economic Literacy Conference in Dallas

Hands-On Sessions and Valuable Networking Opportunities for K-12 Educators

DALLAS, TX (June 25, 2014) This October, the Council for Economic Education will convene over 500 K-12 educators, industry thought leaders, and local affiliate, Federal Reserve and other partners from across the country for the 53rd Annual Financial and Economic Literacy Conference in Dallas, Texas. With networking events and over 100 hands-on training sessions, teachers can attest to the conference’s invaluable benefits: 96% of 2013 attendees reported that they are still using information or resources they gained at the conference; and 100% of attendees would recommend CEE’s Annual Conference to a colleague. And what’s more, by attending, teachers will earn certificates of completion that may be applied toward CEU requirements.

Annual Conference sessions are designed to help teachers incorporate economic and financial literacy in the classroom, offering an incredible opportunity to share and exchange ideas. A few highlights:

Additionally, special roundtable sessions led by master teachers offer an opportunity to share best practices at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
