7th Annual Money Conference 

Women and Money: How To Use What You Have To Create The Joyful, Less-Stressed, Purposeful (and, Yes, Rich) Life You Want

Town & Country Federal Credit Union will once again host its 7th annual Money Conference virtually. This free event is happening on Tuesday, May 11th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm.

The 2021 conference will spotlight the unique challenge’s women face about personal finances.

When it comes to money, women are different. Not that women need different stocks and bonds – but in the way they approach everything from their goals to their responsibilities to their fears and yes, to their investments. Plus, over the past year, women have juggled many financial challenges because of the pandemic. For many women, the role of caretaker has taken on new meaning. Others have stepped away from the workforce due to family responsibilities or layoffs. While other women have shifted to remote work and home schools at the same time.

In her candid, empathetic way, Jean Chatzky will break down the understanding we need of ourselves to understand our money — then puts us on a path to achieve what we want with joy, with confidence, and with much less stress.
