Today’s financial tip is a simple reminder about how important it is to take advantage of opportunities to learn from others and to occasionally attend speakers, seminars, and films that might be a tad outside of your experience. In light of this, I would like to offer an invitation to each of you to attend our Personal Finance Symposium on April 22, 2009 in Columbia, MO. We are grateful for the participation of our speakers and, as you’ll see, we have quite the distinguished lineup for you. The list of speakers in the flyer below. If, however, you want to hear T. Boone Pickens speak at lunch you need to Rsvp to our symposium very soon in order to receive one of the limited number of tickets the UM System has made available for our attendees (address information at the bottom of the flyer). Or, as we are working with President Forsee’s “Energy Summit” in making the T. Boone Pickens’s speech available to our attendees, you may link to https://extweb.missouri.edu/NewWebReg/NewIntro.aspx?tp=1&u=3&p=111989&d=MMchl/c9viAmiqA4cpUc3g , to request a ticket through the Energy Summit. Either event is free ($0 is inexpensive) but we are requesting a Rsvp. If you would like to have lunch with us at the Alumni Center, we are asking for $10 to be paid in advance. Of course you are welcome to eat on your own and, of course, please register and bring a guest.
