REAL Econ for All Conference

Economics and Personal Finance Education Conference

Open to PreK-12 teachers.

This two-day Relevant, Engaging, Activity-based Learning Econ for ALL conference takes place in the summer, typically in July, and offers more than 80 concurrent, outstanding sessions for PreK-12 educators. Premier experts from academia, business and industry lead a wide variety of economic and personal finance sessions. Upon successful completion, participants earn up to 12 hours of staff development (including the opportunity for Arkansas History hours), and receive grade-level curriculum choices, standards-based instruction and networking opportunities. 

It is without a doubt the best two days I spend every summer in Professional Development. Economic Arkansas does an awesome job in the presentation and variety of outstanding speakers. They offer quality speakers who are more than helpful in all that they do. It is the highlight of my summer to attend these sessions.

Sincerely, Marcel Vincent. Lonoke High School. 2016
