Evening With The Fed

On Wednesday, October 14th, from 5:00pm until 8:30pm, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta will be hosting "Evening with the Fed, a Presentation for Middle and High School Educators."

What is this program all about you ask? Well, this is what the Fed brochure I am looking at says:

This free program, hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s head office and branches, provides a forum for school administrators and educators to explore current economic and financial topics that help them translate theory into real-world lessons for their students.

The evening’s presentation and discussion will feature Michael Chriszt, an assistant vice president at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
Chriszt’s presentation will cover
• general economic concepts about labor markets and their connection to economic activity
• how the current recession has affected American workers
• the Federal Reserve’s actions to support the economy

I have gone to an "Evening With the Fed' before and I can tell you it was 100% top notch. You get to hear a great Fed speaker, you walk away with materials, new lesson ideas and on top of all that they feed you an outstanding meal. Sounds like a great night to me.

If you are interested in registering you can do it right here. This will fill up so do not wait if you are interested in attending. Tell them Econblog sent you.
