New Teacher Financial Planning Workshop

 Thursday April 25 2019 @ 4:00 pm  |  Downstairs Classroom
 To Sign Up Click Here

We are proud to have prioritized several opportunities this year for new members to attend this Financial Planning Workshop for Newer Teachers in their first five years or so of their careers. The workshop is presented by Educator's Financial Group which is solely owned by OSSTF. Therefore, these presenters clearly understand the special issues facing new teachers in the education sector.

In light of the unstable future for many of our teachers in their first five years, we wanted to re:offer this workshop that was already offered with time release early in the fall of 2019. Chris Knoch, from Educators Financial Group's lending department, will be on hand to explain lending options for newer members. Jamie Cote, our Regional Financial Planner will be the second presenter and can highlight ideas on how to manage your finances in your early career.

Financial planning is something we never give ourselves time for in the busy first years of our career, but members who have attended these workshops early on say they have never regretted it!

Commission-free individual financial consultations with EFG are available to arrange after the workshop as well.

The event will run from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Light dinner will be provided at 3:30.
