If you have, that can only mean one thing. It’s almost time for Money Smart Week! Each year, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago holds a series of free seminars throughout the Seventh Federal Reserve District (all of Iowa and most of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin). They cover topics such as personal finance, small businesses and entrepreneurship, retirement planning, taxes, mortgages, investing, and bargain shopping.
Money Smart Week will be held in Chicago from April 2 to April 9, 2011. You can see the calendar of events here.
Here’s a listing of other areas that are having Money Smart Week, which might be a different week. MSW @ Your Library has even more options for states outside of the seventh district.
John and I attended a few events last year, and would go again if we had time in our schedules. Will you be going?
PS – I just heard about the new Financial Blogger Conference which will be held in Chicago October 1 – 2, 2011. I might just have to go! Until then, I’ve added a little flair to my sidebar.
