In these complex economic times, people need all the help they can get to keep their finances on track. That is why The Westchester Community College Alumni Association is proud once again to be sponsoring Financial Education Day at Westchester Community College. This year’s event will be our sixth and it will be held on Saturday, March 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Last year’s event drew more than 250 people and we are expecting even more this year. And as always, the event is free, including a private consultation with a financial planner.
The conference, which will be held in The Gateway Center at Westchester Community College, will feature seminars on various aspects of money management. Seventeen workshops will be presented by financial professionals on topics that will address a wide range of everyday concerns including investments, budgeting, insurance, retirement and estate planning, healthcare and more. Attendees will also have the opportunity for free private, one-on-one consultations with experts from the Financial Planning Association and highly qualified Certified Financial Planning professionals. These consultations will also be available from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Produced in partnership with the Financial Planning Association of the Greater Hudson Valley (FPA), United Way, and the college’s Center for Financial and Economic Education, the conference aims to alleviate the money-related anxiety felt by many working Americans in today’s uncertain economy. Open to all, Financial Education Day gives people the opportunity to get financial advice from experts in the field, with no sales pitches and no strings attached.
Financial Education Day is made possible by support from our sponsors: Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Ameriprise, Webster Bank, Madison Planning Group, AXA, BNC Insurance and Risk Advisors, MMJ Group Consulting and Littman and Crooks LLP.
Individuals may register online, by phone, or at the door on March 18. However, space is limited and participants are strongly encouraged to register in advance. For online registration and schedule go to: www.mysunywcc.org/2017fed. To register by phone, please call 914-606-6505.

Statement by Dr. Belinda S. Miles, President, Westchester Community College:
As Westchester County’s largest educational institution, we support the plan to make college more affordable for those seeking relevant 21st Century skills to support themselves and their families. This proposal would help increase access to higher education throughout New York State and help students improve their lives in the future. As more students enter community colleges and complete their studies, they will be positioned to transition to four-year institutions and the workplace where there is a need to fill openings in growing fields such as healthcare, analytics, and information technology.
Removing the affordability barrier is one of the fundamental aspects of the community college “open door” access mission. Some people believe that since community colleges are priced affordably, there is no need for financial aid and other support for incoming students. This is not always the case. Many of our students need scholarships and state and federal financial aid in addition to loans. Directing new financial resources to talent development in New York is a necessary investment that will reap benefits locally, regionally, and nationally.
Students should be aware of how to check delay and closing information, in the event of bad weather. For more details on our weather announcement policy, including where and when we post messages, please visit http://www.sunywcc.edu/about/weather-announcements/.
