Town & Country FCU to Host its 5th Annual Money Conference

The 5th Annual Town & Country FCU Money Conference is set for Saturday, October 19, from noon to 5 pm at the Abromson Center at the University of Southern Maine in Portland. The event’s lineup of speakers and workshops will present topics that will offer something for nearly every demographic. Attendance is open to anyone and at no cost.

“October is National Co-Op Month and we can’t think of much else that highlights the spirit of cooperation any more than offering a conference at no charge that can help people learn about financial issues that can have a positive impact on their financial wellness for years to come,” said David Libby, President and CEO of Town & Country FCU. “This conference is open to anyone because we want as many people as possible to benefit from the knowledge, expertise, and discussion that our workshops and speakers will offer.”

The conference features workshops on a variety of topics, including a number of new sessions:

  • The Sandwich Generation:  A workshop focused on providing information, resources, and suggestions on how to start talking to your elderly family members and children about financial issues.
  • Uncoupling Your Money in Separation and Divorce:  A workshop to help attendees contemplating separation or divorce understand why and how to uncouple their personal finances to help establish a new life.
  • What Is Financial Health, Really?:  A workshop that features nationally-acclaimed financial behavioral expert, Sarah Newcomb, who will discuss research into the minds of spenders and explain how four simple mental factors can affect your financial health.

Other sessions include workshops on home buying, credit basics, paying for college, saving for retirement, estate planning, and more. While the conference runs for the entire afternoon, attendees can choose to attend one session or stay for the entire event.

“This conference is about sharing knowledge and information to help people better understand important financial issues that impact their lives today and in the future,” said Libby.
