Description

JOIN US FOR FINANCIAL BEGINNINGS OREGON'S SIXTH ANNUAL FINANCIAL LITERACY CONFERENCE!


When: 11 October 2019, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Where: Canby High School


Our #2019FLC strives to highlight the critical importance of financial literacy, and to connect attendees with the resources and tools needed to enhance financial literacy efforts in their communities.

What is this Conference all about? What can I expect?

  • A unique professional development opportunity for education, nonprofit, and community leaders across Oregon.
  • Dedicated learning tracks for Financial Education Volunteers, Educators, and Nonprofit Partners.
  • A diverse array of thought leaders and experts presenting on a wide range of financial literacy topics.
  • Ample opportunity to network, share ideas, and build community around financial education.

The day will be kicked off with a keynote by Janet Bauer, Senior Policy Analyst at Oregon Center for Public Policy.

"I'm working but I can't make ends meet" Jobs in Oregon are easier to find now than they have been in decades. Yet many families aren't feeling the economic love. Janet will talk about how families are faring today in meeting their basic needs, what is holding them back from economic security, and some clues as to what we can do about it.
