Last night, CFA Society North Carolina held its first Trivia Night! It attracted over 400 participants to socialize with peers from across North Carolina in a fun, casual setting and dust off any cobwebs that may be forming while working from home.

And as an added bonus – all proceeds were donated to the North Carolina Council on Economic

Education!

The North Carolina Council on Economic Education (NCCEE) was founded with one goal in mind — to enhance and advance economic and financial education for K-12 educators and students of North Carolina. The non-profit organization provides financial literacy courses, workshops and programs, as well as economic education training to hundreds of North Carolina teachers each year.

How does our networking event help?

These funds will be used to provide professional development for high school teachers that are teaching the newly required Economics and Personal Finance course. This is a new course required for graduation and is a new, full credit course, with no text book. The state of NC was meant to provide funds but the state budget was vetoed and never approved.
