Financial Forums Class Schedule:

TUESDAY, JUNE 4 ‐ Identity Theft & Fraud (Personal Finance)

From buying a car to applying for a job, you've likely needed some form of ID to prove your identity. In fact, your identity is one of the most valuable assets you have. This workshop is designed to help you learn what all is at risk and how to safeguard your identity.

TUESDAY, JUNE 11 ‐ Considering Home Ownership (Homeownership Part 1)

This workshop is designed to help you become more familiar with the process of buying and owning a home.

TUESDAY, JUNE 18 ‐ Understanding Mortgages (Homeownership Pt. 2)

In this workshop, participants will gain a better understanding of the different types of mortgages, common costs associated with buying a home, financing options, and how to get started with the application process. Buying and owning a home is a dream for many people. This workshop can help you turn that dream into a reality.

TUESDAY, JUNE 25 ‐ Developing a Business Plan (Small Business)

A business plan is the one piece of information that potential lenders, business incubators, investors, and economic development organizations will want before deciding to loan money or invest.
