Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
With the unemployment rate remaining stubbornly high, foreclosure still knocking on the door of struggling homeowners, and a less than impressive consumer savings rate, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC) Members prepare to gather in Charlotte, NC October 1 - 3, eager to address the many pressing issues confronting Americans.
“It can be argued that there has never been a more critical time to focus on the economic hardships facing consumers and develop concrete solutions to help them find financial stability,” said Susan C. Keating, president and CEO of the NFCC.
This year’s event will bring together more than 250 agency executives, credit counselors, national leaders and stakeholders from around the country. Conference attendees will benefit from remarks provided by an impressive list of speakers, as well as presentations, panels and workshops around best practices in the financial education sector, providing agency representatives with the tools to better serve consumers.
Featured speakers in Charlotte include:
The NFCC is thankful to the many sponsors who have generously supported the 2012 Annual Leaders Conference: Bank of America, Chase, Citi, Clarify for Consumers and Experian at the Diamond level, and GE, Visa and Wells Fargo as Silver Sponsors.
