Fox Cities Money Conference

Lynne Finch, author of the award-winning book “The No-Cash Allowance” will present a workshop “How much allowance should I give my child?” at the Saturday, November 2 Fox Cities Money Conference at Fox Valley Technical College. The WI Registry has approved the workshop for one hour of continuing education credit for training based on core knowledge areas referred to by The National Association of Young Children.

Finch says “how much allowance” is the most common question parents ask. In the 2:45 p.m. workshop parents will look at the benefits of kids having an allowance, fill out a worksheet to help them calculate an allowance for their child, and learn how to set up a system that will teach their kids good money management skills.

The 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. conference features 25 separate one-hour classroom workshops for adults on a wide range of topics, information tables staffed by financial institutions and community-serving organizations, the opportunity to obtain a credit report, and time to discuss individual financial situations with knowledgeable experts. Age-appropriate workshops for kids age six and over are also provided.

Keynote speakers Lisa Welko of Ellipse Fitness and Alan Prahl of FISC will headline the program. In keeping with a “Health and Wealth” theme, Ms. Welko and Mr. Prahl will share tips on how to improve your financial literacy while making healthy choices in the food you eat and in your lifestyle.
