CEE’s Annual Educator Conference Was a Huge Success!
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.
About the Council for Economic Education
The Council for Economic Education’s (CEE’s) mission is to equip K-12 students with the tools and knowledge of personal finance and economics so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities which connects to and strengthens our broader economy. We carry out our mission primarily by providing resources and training to K-12 educators and have done so for nearly 75 years. EconEdLink, our free online educator gateway for economic and personal finance lessons, attracts approximately 450,000 users annually and nearly two-thirds of the tens of thousands of teachers we train are in low- to moderate-income schools. CEE also provides young people with programs to prepare them for their financial futures and help them understand the economic impact of real-world events. Invest in Girls, our program for high school girls, and our National Economics and Personal Finance Challenges together inspire and motivate over 30,000 high school students annually. All resources and programs are educator developed and delivered by our nearly 200 affiliates nationally. We also advocate for more and better education in personal finance and economics, leveraging our biennial Survey of the States.
