Personal Finance Professional Ethics & Standards of Practice - A Professional Dialogue

11:00 am EDT

This webinar training will be offered and conducted as a facilitated professional discussion and participation in the discussion will be encouraged. A high level introduction to the subject of ethics will be offered as a primer for understanding the basics of ethics (for those who may not have had any previous formal education or training in ethics) and this will help to serve as a framework for approaching the discussion of case studies. A number of brief case studies will be presented, and participants will be given an opportunity to respond in text to questions posed about each case study, including how they might respond in these situations. We will then consider and discuss the case study scenario and our various responses.


AFC-credentialed participants can earn 1.5 CEUs. More information about this process is available here.  This webinar is approved for 1.5 general CEUs for FinCert Certified Personal Finance Counselors (CPFC).

    Residue and Tillage Management in Organic Farming Systems: Eastern States

    3:00 pm EDT

    Lindsay Haines
    Organic Program Specialist
    USDA NRCS Financial Assistance Programs Division

    Decreasing tillage and maximizing plant residue are important practices to improve the health of soil and reduce erosion. In many organic farming systems these practices can be challenging to implement due to the use of tillage for weed control. However, there are several opportunities to better manage tillage and plant residues. Join this webinar for a discussion of these challenges and opportunities in the context of organic farms in eastern states. This three-part series will feature different regions.

    In the Understanding Organic Agriculture series, this webinar is presented by USDA NRCS Science and Technology. Contact Ben Bowell, Organic Specialist, for more information about this webinar.
