Representatives will educate Massachusetts residents about sound financial matters and home ownership

Cambridge Credit Counseling Corp. will be participating in this weekend’s Money Conference for Women & Families on Saturday, September 27th, 2008. The conference is part of a series presented periodically throughout the Commonwealth by Timothy P. Cahill, Massachusetts State Treasurer, in conjunction with the YWCA. The goal of the free conference is to provide education and advice on a wide range of money management issues confronting women, including retirement and investment strategies.

“The dramatic events taking place in our financial markets is a clear reminder that all consumers need to know how to manage their finances wisely,” remarked Christopher Viale, Cambridge’s president and CEO. “Treasurer Cahill has been a strong advocate of financial literacy, and it is an honor for our organization to assist in providing the education so many Americans desperately need.”

Cambridge Credit Counseling Corp. will be on hand to advise attendees about their choices in developing a sound financial plan. In addition, Cambridge’s Community Outreach Director, Thomas J. Fox, will be part of the afternoon discussion, Home Ownership: How to be a Careful Consumer in a Complicated Market, which will be conducted from 2 pm to 3:30 pm.

For those interested in attending, the event will be held at the:

Reggie Lewis Athletic Center

Roxbury Community College

1350 Tremont Street

Roxbury Crossing, MA 02120

Pre-registration is required for this one-day conference, and registration information can be obtained by calling the State Treasurer's office at (617) 367-6900.
