CBA Partners with State Controller’s Office to Highlight Manage Your Money Week: Oct. 18-25
Join us by signing up your bank to participate and partner today!
The California’s Bankers Association is pleased to partner with the State Controller’s Office to highlight Manage Your Money Week, an effort between state and local government agencies, non-profit organizations, schools, libraries and financial institutions to host free money management education events and promote the importance of good money management practices in communities throughout California.
Manage Your Money Week, designed to promote the importance of building the capacity of all Californians to make good financial decisions to achieve their goals, is a project of the state controller’s financial literacy advisory committee. Advisory committee member Louise Walker, CBA treasurer and president and CEO of First Northern Bank, and CBA encourage your bank to sign up to become a partner to promote your own financial literacy resources. You can find information on becoming a partner here and also post your own upcoming financial events in your community.
Manage Your Money Week also aims to connect consumers to money management resources in their communities, build relationships between organizations that provide money management resources and education with other organizations whose constituents need the support and provide a framework for state, regional and local financial education groups to work in collaboration to highlight their programs and services.
Programs and events will be offered to all demographics in multiple languages and cover all facets of personal finance from opening a checking account and managing a budget, to credit counseling, first-time home buying, planning for retirement, avoiding financial scams and starting a business.
