2018-19 Adviser Forum East has ended
**Reminders: Please bring a notebook and pen to every session, and wear your CAC name badge at all times.**

Dear CAC family,

Welcome to our Adviser Forum East in New York City! We are thrilled to have you here in the Big Apple and are grateful to our host chapter, the awesome NYU Corps!

Our theme this year goes to the heart of CAC’s mission -- Advancing Opportunity. The goal over the next few days is to recommit ourselves to advancing opportunity in various ways. We hope you will discover best practices from your peers, engage with the research, reflect on your journey and what may lie ahead by interacting with the alumni panel and industry workshops, and be inspired by our guest speakers whose stories capture in powerful ways the journey to advancing opportunity.

On behalf of our national team and Board of Directors, we are grateful for the work that each of you — 716 advisers serving 210,000 students in 16 states across the country — do every day. We continue to build a national movement at a critical time in our nation’s history. Let us commit to ensuring every student hears those four key words, “I believe in you” and, together, we advance opportunity.

It is an honor to serve with you!

Adviser Session #2: Make Money Move - Fostering Financial Literacy at Rural Sites

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Dive into what advisers face when they work to advance financial literacy in rural communities. We’ll delve into the effects of a strong sense of community pride, mysticism surrounding loan-borrowing, and common financial-aid myths. You’ll learn to successfully conduct financial aid classroom presentations, understand the community you serve and the issues therein from a financial lens, and how to talk to families about financial aid. Join us!
