Please join financial education practitioners, researchers and stakeholders to consider how we can help Maryland adults gain the skills and confidence to meet their financial goals. This Summit is designed to allow educators to share their best teaching tools, methods and curriculum with the group. We bring together up-to-date research, best practices, and the insights and expertise of our state’s financial education leaders.  Via interactive presentations, plenary sessions and small workshops we will consider these key questions:

What would it take to provide high quality, engaging financial education for adults in Maryland? What would it take for financial education to lead to better outcomes for participants?
