Whether you’re facing first-time loans as college student or you’re signing a mortgage as a third-time home buyer, both come with risks, opportunities and of course, questions. To help upstate New Yorkers navigate these sometimes complex decisions, WAMC and WMHT are teaming up with NPR to bring NPR’s Family Matters to Albany for a conversation about money and financial responsibility that will be beneficial for all, no matter where you are in life.
NPR Presents: Family Matters is a live national events series that connects regular people with financial experts for invaluable conversations about money. Led by NPR Morning Edition host David Greene, Business correspondent Yuki Noguchi and Business reporter Sonari Glinton, those live and often lively events are driven by an audience ready to talk strategy. From accumulating debt and amassing wealth to saving for college and even fitting in a few extravagances.
In Albany, Green and Noguchi will be joined on stage by personal finance experts Louis Barajas, founder and chief wealth and business manager at LAB Financial Life Solutions and Michelle Singletary, nationally syndicated personal finance columnist for the Washington Post, to leave audience members with greater confidence in their financial situation.
The public can follow and participate in the conversations by using the hashtag #NPRFamilyMatters on Twitter.
NPR’s Family Matters will take place at the University at Albany Recital Hall on October 15th at 7:00 PM.
