Join the NFEC’s Advisory Board
The NFEC team is made up of individuals with a passion for helping people improve their financial capabilities and a desire to promote the overall financial literacy movement. Your contributions help us propel the financial literacy movement beyond the tipping point.
Business Advisory Board
The NFEC is actively working toward a national solution to the financial illiteracy epidemic by providing turnkey financial education solutions that can be duplicated, sustained, and brought to scale in communities across the country.
The NFEC mission is stated as “creating a world where people are informed to make qualified financial decisions that improve their lives, the lives of their loved ones, and the lives of people they reach around the globe. To garner business advice about the direction we should take toward realizing that mission, we formed the NFEC Advisory Board.
Our business model is designed around our National Financial Capability Strategy publication. From the analysis presented in this paper, three common themes emerged that might usefully underpin national standards for promoting financial literacy: education, awareness, and sustainability.
We seek advisors who possess expertise in any of those three areas. We value your thoughts and look forward to collaborating with you to have positive impact on the financial capabilities of people around the globe.
*Board participation is voluntary and you will never be asked for monetary donations. Advisory Board members meet quarterly with NFEC executives in a 45-minute phone conference; there also may be follow-up discussions via email. We value your time and will accommodate your schedule.
Curriculum Advisory Board
The NFEC is committed to increasing financial literacy across the nation and around the world. To reach that goal, the NFEC brought together a team of educators and financial professionals to design financial capability curriculum for all ages. The result is a comprehensive package of resources with content that meets educational standards while remaining practical in nature – materials that truly prepare people for the financial “real world.”
Now the NFEC seeks experienced financial professionals, educators, and people with specialized knowledge of financial literacy topics to participate on its Curriculum Advisory Board. Qualified advisors will possess expert-level knowledge in one or more specific area(s) of financial literacy subject matter, along with a desire to help others.
The duties of a financial literacy curriculum advisor are simply to review and comment on two or more sections of the instructors guide (each section is about four pages long).
