10th Annual Financial Literacy Leadership Conference

SFE&PD hosted its 10th Annual Financial Literacy Leadership Conference and 10th Anniversary Celebration October 2-3, 2017 in Alexandria, VA. Over 200 financial educators and scholars from across the nation convened to share financial literacy strategies and best practices with top experts in the financial profession. We can’t wait until the next conference in October 2018 to bring our colleagues and financial literacy friends together again!

In 2017, our theme “Financial Reality vs. Financial Behavior” took an in-depth look at financial decision-making and insights into what motivates our actions. Our workshops spanned from major aspects of financial education from money management to how to close the wealth gap to financial methodologies, along with health financial practices for individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Below are highlights from the conference:
