“Smart Money Choices conferences give attendees valuable tools to better plan their finances and future. People can learn about topics ranging from credit and debt management to planning for retirement or paying for your children’s college education,” said Treasurer Mandel.  “Studies show that employees experiencing financial stress are distracted during the work day, and financial education can help increase productivity.  Ohioans looking to take better control of their finances should plan to attend these free seminars.” 

The conferences include an opening session, panel discussion, breakout sessions taught by financial planning experts, and a closing session.  Participants are encouraged to interact with presenters and ask questions.  These all day conferences are presented from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Courses that will be offered during the day are Budgeting, Credit & Debt Management, Consumer Fraud, Estate Planning, Insurance, Investments, Kids & Money, Programs to Help Ohioans, Retirement Planning and Social Security.
