SOLD OUT - Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz On Becoming A Financially Savvy Woman

Thursday, March 5, 2015 Industry Leadership Series

Financial security is vital, but sadly many people, particularly women, lack sufficient financial literacy to obtain financial security for themselves and their families. Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz' passion is to improve financial literacy, and she will talk about what women especially need to know to achieve enough literacy to provide for themselves and their families, and to teach their children basic financial skills. In this informal program, followed by questions from the audience, Carrie will answer questions from Michelle Alberda, financial advisor, Ameriprise, co-founder of SKIRT, a women’s networking organization, and 2007 President of FWSF.

Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz will be providing up to 100 complimentary copies of her new widely acclaimed book, The Charles Schwab Guide to Finances after Fifty: Answers to Your Most Important Money Questions.

This topic is currently under review by the CFP Board for 1 hour of CFP continuing education credit.
