We Can't Do It Alone.


It is the priority of the Florida Council on Economic Education to keep our employees and our community safe. As such, we will be closing our office and working remotely from home until otherwise directed by state officials. During this time we will continue to work as hard as we can to deliver resources and programming. Financial Freedom shipments will continue to go out as long as our warehouse operations are open.

To reach our staff please email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.


In light of the recent COVID-19 health concerns, the Florida Council on Economic Education along with our board members, event co-chairs and the class of 2020 inductees Jack Harrell, Dwayne Hawkins, Pam Iorio and Tom Wallace made the difficult choice to reschedule the 33rd Annual Tampa Bay Business Hall of Fame. Our first priority and concern is that of our patrons and after careful consideration we have moved the program to AUGUST 28, 2020. Learn more.

WHO WE ARETeachers_HomePage1

The Florida Council on Economic Education (FCEE) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit serving K-12 school districts, teachers and students throughout Florida. The FCEE operates as a public/private partnership and is the primary resource for teachers seeking training and classroom resources for economic and financial education, all at no cost thanks to the generous financial support of our business community funders.


We partner with and support five Centers for Economic Education across Florida, each of which is committed to providing quality professional development training to educators and innovative instructional materials for their classrooms. The FCEE realizes professional development training for teachers delivers an extraordinary multiplier effect, with every K-5 teacher reaching 25-30 students each year and middle and high school teachers reaching up to 200 students annually. Once trained, an educator is able to integrate economics and personal finance lessons into their classroom for years, thus helping to make literally thousands of students economically and financially literate.

HOW WE DO ITCenters_HomePage1

The FCEE and our affiliated Centers for Economic and Financial Education provide award-winning professional development training to districts free of charge. Many trainings can be used toward CEU credits and provide resources or a stipend for attending. Workshops stress the importance interweaving economics into other content areas such as drama, history, math, and literature and align with current standards and pedagogical methods.
