NCCEE Board of Directors

The North Carolina Council on Economic Education (NCCEE) is governed by a Board of Directors representing business and education across North Carolina. The Board of Directors reflects the diverse economic base of our state as well as the constituencies served by the Council.

We host two annual meetings of the Board of Directors, as well as quarterly Executive Committee meetings. Special meetings may be called from time to time as the board deems necessary.
