Spend your fall with us at the Fed

On Sept. 30, you are invited to join your colleagues from across the country for a unique opportunity to learn from Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

During "Conversation with the Chairman," Bernanke will address teachers nationwide via videoconference. In addition, the chairman will take questions from educators in the audience in all 12 Federal Reserve districts.

This discussion with the chairman is a chance to bolster your understanding of the Federal Reserve System at an event designed for educators.

We hope you can join us at your nearest Federal Reserve office for this special program. Register now for the workshop at the Birmingham, Jacksonville, Miami, Nashville, and New Orleans Fed offices.

The Federal Reserve Board of Governors will offer a live webcast of Chairman Bernanke's address, beginning at 2:30 p.m. (EDT) on Sept. 30. After you register, you will receive an e-mail with a link to the webcast.

An "Evening with the Fed"
The free 2010 "Evening with the Fed" program, hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta's head office and branches, is titled "Crossroads of the Crisis: A Southeastern Economic Update and Forecast." The program provides a forum for middle and high school administrators and educators to explore current economic and financial topics that help them translate theory into real-world lessons for their students.

The presentation will cover

  • general economic concepts related to the current economic environment,
  • an economic update and outlook, and
  • the Federal Reserve's continued actions to support the economy.

The speaker will be a senior research economist from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta who is part of a team that advises the bank president on monetary policy and related matters.

See the calendar of workshops and events to register for an "Evening with the Fed" program or other workshops offered at your nearest Federal Reserve office.

We hope to see you soon.
