Money Talk, Financial Education for Women, will be offered locally this March by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. The 5-session class gives women the knowledge to make major financial decisions and improve their lives. Designed to help women improve their money management skills and overall level of financial knowledge, Money Talk will be held Thursdays, starting March 3rd, from 6:30 to 8:30-p.m., at the Cass County Community Center in Atlantic. Registration deadline is Tuesday, March 1st to ensure materials are available for participants.
The five week course will cover the following topics:
March 3: Financial Basics – Sandra McKinnon, Iowa State University Extension
March 10: Insurance Essentials – Tammy Cullen, Cullen & Associates
March 17: Investment Fundamentals – Jenny Johnson, Wiges & Johnson
March 24: Retirement Realities – Megan Roberts, Megan Roberts State Farm
March 31: Legal Issues -Jody Lorence, Otto, Lorence & Weiderstein, PLLC
The program is strictly educational, using a research-based Extension curriculum, and does not promote any company or product. Local speakers were invited to share their subject matter expertise, and to be a voice of experience for participant questions.
The cost for the 5 week program is $25 per person. This includes all sessions, handout materials and a 192-page workbook that participants will use to track their goals and progress. This program registration fee is below the usual course fee of $75 per person due to support from the Cass County Extension Council and local sponsors Cullen & Associates; Wiges & Johnson, Ameriprise Financial; Megan Roberts, State Farm; and Otto, Lorence & Wiederstein, PLLC.
