I am heading down to Washington, D.C. today for the first ever personal financial planning national educators conference.  The wonderful non-profit, Jump$tart, has put together this conference.  Approximately 250 teachers of all grades from nearly every state will attend.

Along with Sheila Bair, Chairwoman of the FDIC and Janet Bodnar of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, I am honored to be offering a general session seminar.  I am also very excited to meet some of these presumably very motivated teachers and to learn of the challenges they face everyday in trying to incorporate this incredibly critical education.

Next week, I’ll be back with a recap.  But since the conference runs all weekend long, feel free to pipe in below with any questions you have.

    Enjoyed talking to you at breakfast before you spoke at the JumpStart Converntion. Really enjoyed the talk you gave to the educators. Hopefully, this will get the ball rolling in many of the states that don’t mandate financial education.
