Coinciding with a national campaign to teach everyone about credit, the newest “Get Financially Fit” seminar will take place at Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church on Saturday, Oct. 11, the Concerned Black Clergy of Metropolitan Atlanta announced.
The free seminar will have something to offer to almost anyone with financial concerns or aspirations. Sessions will take place on student lending, home buying, purchase-renovation home loans, getting ready for retirement, and starting and running a small business, with Wells Fargo and other financial experts sharing their expertise.
A special session to teach teens about money management will be held, and teens are invited to other sessions as well.
For the first time, United Way of Greater Atlanta and the Urban League of Greater Atlanta will join by offering their own sessions. The Urban League will offer its Home ownership and Entrepreneurial program, while the United Way will offer sessions to participants in its Financial Capability Network initiative.
Once again, financial coach and author Rob Wilson, whose latest book is Wealth Increasing Now, will colead the sessions for small businesses.
Greater Piney Grove, at 1879 Glenwood Ave. SE in the East Lake area, is the ninth church across the metro area to host the popular seminar. This ninth seminar will be held during “Get Smart About Credit” month, a national initiative of the American Bankers Association.
One of the best attended sessions explores credit score and credit, and once again it will be taught by ClearPoint Counseling.
