City of Mesa to host free Financial Planning Day

From the City of Mesa:

We’ve all heard that there’s no such thing as a free lunch, but in these challenging economic times, Mesa-area residents will be able to get free financial planning advice and guidance from professional financial planners at Mesa Financial Planning Day.  The event will be held on October 23 at the Mesa Convention Center and will feature experts from the Financial Planning Association® and highly qualified Certified Financial Planner™ professionals, all volunteering their time and expertise to work with local residents one-on-one to address important financial issues. 

In order to tailor the program to meet the needs of the community, we need residents to complete a simple four-question survey about the financial topics they are most interested in learning about such as budgeting, investing, credit repair, tax planning and home ownership.  This data will help us select the topics that are most important to Mesa residents and choose financial planners for the one-on-one sessions.  

“What better way to meet the needs of our community than to ask them exactly what they need,” Mesa Mayor Scott Smith said. “This innovative program is designed to get directly to the issues of most concern to residents and provide free advice to those struggling to find answers. The Financial Planning Association and the US Conference of Mayors have hit the nail on the head in developing this program and I am happy to welcome Financial Planning Day to Mesa.”

To fill out the survey go to http://mesaaz.gov/citymgt/mayorcc/mayor.aspx. This page also has more information about Mesa Financial Planning Day and free online registration.
