Statistics show that more people today are struggling with the uncertainty of their financial future and that of their families. Finding financial security in this newly evolved, unprecedented, barren economic landscape is of significant concern to all. The Treasurer's Office is happy to organize these seminars in partnership with Dollars and Sense, Inc., and invites everyone who is seeking to improve their fiscal skills, monetary knowledge, and long term financial security to take advantage of this valuable educational resource and networking opportunity.
