10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Workshop Content: This workshop will walk you through the financial aspects of aging. The presentation intermixes group discussion with lecture and gets you talking about the following questions: How will you adapt to the challenge of spending after a lifetime of saving? What are your goals? How do they align with your income and spending? What is your financial personality? What really matters to you and what is mere habit? 

Workshop Leader: Connie Kilmark is a financial counselor, trainer, and speaker on personal money management, life planning, psychologically sensitive investment, and couple dynamics related to money. Her approach balances the heart and soul of money with the financial facts to assist clients in achieving a sustainable relationship with both the material and social world.
