This year marked our 61st annual Financial Literacy & Economic Education Conference. Here, we gather together with educators, affiliates, and friends of CEE for a 2-day event packed with all things economics and personal finance. We offer live professional development opportunities to help teachers learn the latest and share exciting ways to engage students of all ages and also provide opportunities for networking so teachers can learn from each other too!
There were over 50 educational sessions with topics such as The Economics of Food Delivery, Female Pioneers in Economics, Gamifying Personal Finance to Increase Student Engagement, and Personal Finance Escape Room in a Bag. The Conference also featured Karin Kimbrough, the Chief Economist for LinkedIn, as the plenary speaker.
This year was our first year back in person since 2019 and we were THRILLED to see everyone!! We are already counting down the days until next year! Here are some photo highlights, but be sure to check us out on Twitter to see our live tweeting throughout the entire Conference. Hope to see you next year! Finally, we’d like to offer a huge thank you to our co-host, the Virginia Council on Economic Education, and our sponsors; Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Discover, Federal Reserve Education, Fidelity Investments, NEFE, and ally. We are grateful for your support.
The Council for Economic Education’s mission is to teach K-12 students about economics and personal finance so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families and their communities. We carry out our mission by providing resources and training to K-12 educators and have done so for 70 years. Nearly 2/3 of the teachers we reach in person are in low- and moderate-income schools.
