Extension Workshop will Focus on Finances

In these tough economic times, it’s more important than ever that individuals gain an understanding of how to establish and meet financial goals that will see them into the future.

Coming in March, Pinellas Extension offers the three-part seminar Focus on Finances, which will give participants valuable insight on how to better manage their personal finances.

Extension Specialist Karen Saley leads each session. The first workshop takes place on Wednesday, March 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., with subsequent sessions on March 17 and March 24. The cost is $15 for the entire series. Participants are encouraged to attend all three sessions as new topics will be discussed at each meeting. Those who attend all three sessions will be eligible to receive free, one-on-one financial counseling from a member of the Financial Planners Association of Tampa Bay.
