06/20/2014 - Jump$tart National Educator Conference

Educator Conference logo

As the nation’s leading advocate for youth financial literacy, the Jump$tart Coalition® is proud to conduct its sixth annual conference devoted specifically to PreK-12 classroom teachers of personal finance. This year’s event will take place November 8-10, 2014 at the Omni Hotel at California Plaza in Los Angeles.  

This conference, generously underwritten and supported by a variety of sponsors, will offer classroom educators an opportunity to see, learn about, and try educational resources that can be integrated immediately into current lesson plans and to attend informative workshops under three different strands — Content/Curriculum, Personal Development “101” for those newer to this subject matter and Personal Development “AP” for those ready to tackle more advance content.  The conference also offers teachers an opportunity to meet with the leaders from finance and education and to network with colleagues from across the country.


  • Exhibitors. Educators continue to say that the Exhibit Hall is one of the most popular elements of the conference.   The dedicated Exhibit Hall session offers the opportunity to share and discuss the financial education resources with teachers who are eager to use them the first day they return to the classroom! Visit the conference web page for more details.
  • Sponsors. To provide this professional development experience at a price that teachers and schools can afford, Jump$tart needs help from generous sponsors.  All sponsors get a complimentary exhibit table and exhibitor registration as well as great visibility with educators and other stakeholders.  Sponsors are needed at a variety of levels, starting at just $2,000.  Visit the conference web page for more details.
  • Outreach to Teachers. Partners, state coalitions, and friends, please share this conference information with your teacher lists, social media outlets and others in your circles.  While teacher registration doesn’t open until September 4, in many cases, educators need significant lead time to obtain approvals to attend conferences, so the sooner they get the word the better! Contact Jump$tart for this year’s Save-the-Date graphic to forward or post.  “Like” or “share” the National Educator Conference Facebook page to help your followers find us.
  • Your commitment to support the professional development for teachers of personal finance in any or all of these ways.  To become a sponsor, exhibitor, or to help promote this event among your teacher constituents, please visit the conference web page or contact Dan Hebert, right away.  Exhibit space and some sponsorship opportunities are limited.


  • Location.  This is the first time the conference will be held on the west coast.
  • Timing. This year’s conference will run Saturday through Monday, taking advantage of the Veteran’s Day Holiday on Tuesday, November 11.
  • Pre-Sale. Previous attendees will be given a pre-sale opportunity before teacher registration opens, officially, on September 4.
