Last week our staff journeyed to Atlanta to share our passion for spreading financial literacy with a group full of like minded individuals at the Council for Economic Education’s 2018 Conference.

The conference is an event that brings together teachers, economists, researchers and industry leaders to talk about financial literacy education and learn more about our economy. It is also a platform to celebrate these men and women along with the work they do. During the conference we saw some outstanding educators and thought leaders get honored.

Some very influential voices in the world of business spoke with attendees to share their thoughts on the importance of financial literacy education and answer questions about the economy.
