Announcement: As of August 31st, 2010, A Conversation with the Chairman teacher workshop, for the Richmond and Baltimore locations, is full. The Charlotte Branch is still accepting registrations.
Within the next week, the Baltimore and Richmond offices will contact those teachers confirmed for the each workshop. We look forward to hosting this very special event, and thank you for your interest in Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond educational programs.
On September 30, 2010, beginning at 9:00 a.m. the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond will take part in a system-wide workshop where teachers will be offered a special opportunity to meet with the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, Ben Bernanke.
Teachers will begin their day at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, where they will take a V.I.P. tour of The Fed Experience, our new interactive lobby exhibit.
Next, educators will board a bus and travel to Washington, D.C. to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. On the bus, teachers will be treated to a box lunch and be introduced to a variety of Federal Reserve publications and resources designed to enhance student understanding of the Federal Reserve System.
In order to be granted access to the Board you must provide the following information: social security number and date of birth. Persons without a social security number may use a passport number. Providing the information requested is voluntary; however, failure to provide it may result in denial of entry to the Federal Reserve Board.
What do you want to ask Chairman Bernanke?
Several educators will have the opportunity to ask the Chairman their questions during the session. Submit your question with your registration before September 10, 2010, for consideration.
This event is open to middle and high school teachers.
Lunch and resource materials will be provided. There is no fee.
