Virtual NGPF FinLit Conference - Saturday, April 24th

Save the Date! The 2021 NGPF Virtual FinLit Conference will be on April 24th, 2021. The conference will showcase 18 new, timely, and updated Virtual PD sessions, with a bonus 1 hour session on the ‘State of Financial Education in the U.S.’ We are excited to gather educators from all around the country to learn and engage together on all things financial education - especially with April being FinLitMonth. Come join us; as with all things at NGPF, the conference is free and open to all!

  1. You must register for each session you want to attend, including the State of Finlit Education session.
  2. Please do not register for more than one session in a single time slot.
  3. If you want to attend more than 1 session in the same hour, don’t worry - these sessions will be repeated through our regular NGPF VPD scheduling starting late April. To make for a cohesive and engaging experience, we ask that you don’t jump from session to session in the middle of an hour.
  4. For each session you attend, you will get 1 NGPF Academy credit; each session will also have a gift card raffle!
