The Massachusetts Financial Education Collaborative 5th Annual Summit
The Massachusetts Financial Education Collaborative (MFEC) is hosting its 5th Annual MA Summit on Financial Education: Showing Results & Telling Your Story, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston on October 29th from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM. The Show & Tell theme of this year’s Summit was inspired by the 700 plus educators, institutions, and organizations that have shared with MFEC about innovative financial education programming, outcomes, and best practices in regions across the state.
At last year’s Summit, 13 of the members, including three financial institutions, presented logic models from MFEC outcomes measurement trainings at the 4th Summit: Measuring Impact & Making a Difference. Training to help community organizations strengthen their financial education programming for low and moderate income families in Western Massachusetts has been a priority in 2013. This work will be presented at this year’s Summit, along with a map of financial education services and presentations from credit unions and banks doing quality outreach and education in various parts of the state. Regulators will present on how to form strong CRA partnerships, and interactive workshops will use a range of technology, creative arts, Reality Fair formats, and standard lecture presentations to engage and educate attendees. Ample time, along with interactive activities, is available in a series of 10 minute breaks to facilitate networking.
