Get Your Students Pumped Up on Personal Finance & Economics!

Clear your schedule to attend the best economics and personal finance education in our state. Schools and teachers from across our state are implementing new in economics and personal finance standards that raise the bar on student learning objectives and expand the reach of these subjects into early elementary school. Don’t miss this opportunity to grow your knowledge and professional network.

We believe all K-12 educators can learn how to integrate economics and personal finance standards into their teaching, not just as stand alone subjects, but integrated into history, math and reading. Last year, attendees gave the overall conference experience an almost perfect rating of 4.8 out of 5.0!
