"This year's award winners represent diversity in innovation, expertise and leadership," said AFCPE Executive Director, Rebecca Wiggins. "Our members are making incredible accomplishments across financial education, research, and practice – setting the standard for the important work happening in our field."
For the participants in the Community Financial Empowerment Certification Program, this opportunity provides value twofold. It allows them to build upon the knowledge they are learning in their training, by working with a highly skilled and qualified AFC® certified professional; but it also allows them to take a moment to focus on their financial needs. For social service providers who are continually putting the needs of others first, this event provides the chance to build financial empowerment and well-being in their lives.
