No business cards exchanged and no one will even follow up with a call. The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 23, 2010, at the Columbia Heights Educational Campus in Washington, DC, and will feature experts from the Financial Planning Association and highly qualified Certified Financial Planner professionals, all volunteering their time and expertise to work with local residents one-on-one to address important financial issues.

Financial planners will be at their own tables to meet one-on-one with attendees to answer questions on budgeting, getting out of debt, income taxes, dealing with mortgage foreclosures, paying for college, estate planning and insurance, among many other topics.  The event will also feature a series of classroom-style educational workshops addressing key personal finance topics, including: Planning for Your Financial Goals, Investing Basics–20 Tips for Becoming a Smart Investor, Real World Retirement Planning, Young Professionals: Launching Your Financial Plan, and more.
