The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and the JMU Center for Economic Education invites grade 6-12 educators to attend a free virtual professional development symposium on the state of entrepreneurship in the Shenandoah Valley and the role educators can play in developing students’ future entrepreneurial mindset.

During this symposium, attendees will hear from John Bailey Jones, senior economist and research advisor at the Richmond Fed, on entrepreneurship's role in the economy and the latest impact of current economic conditions.

Attendees will also hear from a panel of local experts, including Peter Denbigh of the Staunton Innovation Hub, Joyce Krech of the Shenandoah Valley Small Business Development Center, and Frank Tamberrino, president and CEO of the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Chamber of Commerce, on the entrepreneurship ecosystem in the Valley and opportunities for student engagement.

Finally, there will be sharing of classroom resources from the Richmond Fed, the JMU Center for Economic Education, and fellow educators.
