Personal Financial Literacy Conference

Conference Summary

Financial Literacy is something that we are passionate about! We have taught and supported Iowans throughout our 14-year history to embrace Financial Literacy. Every year we offer a conference targeted to educators of all kinds to get an update on the programs and materials available to help them teach Financial Literacy to Iowans everywhere. Furthermore, the conference fosters collaboration with us and other educators so that we can learn from each other. With the new Iowa Core Curriculum in place in Iowa schools, the role of our annual conference appears more vital than ever.

The 2014 conference was held July 17 at DMACC in Ankeny. We had great speakers, sessions, exhibitors, and other opportunities to build your curriculum! If you weren’t able to attend, check out the handouts and presentations below available from the conference.
