Getting to Know You: Introducing Personal Finance Managers and Cooperative Extension to Each Other

This is a free webinar hosted by the Personal Finance concentration area of the Military Families Learning Network.

This 90-minute webinar will focus on building community capacity among financial educators working with military service members. Community Capacity is the process of developing and strengthening the skills, instincts, abilities, processes and resources that organizations and communities need to thrive in the fast-changing world.
In this webinar, we will discuss programs and resources available to service members and families through each Military Services’ financial readiness programs and the Cooperative Extension System. Representatives from each military branch of service's financial readiness office will speak about the best practices their PFMs are using in the field to educate service members. Dr. Barbara O'Neill will give an overview of resources available to PFMs through the Cooperative Extension system.


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).
