Prof Dev Conf Speaker: Financial Literacy
What ever happened to 99 cents tacos? Jeanne Denton was our financial literacy presenter at the conference and brought to our attention that everything goes up in price, even tacos. And inflation is only a part of the big money picture in our lives.
She is the founder of Learn and Thrive Co., and strives to educate audiences on all things money. Young adults who are ready to embark on their independent lives will walk out enlightened. Her storytelling combined with experience in financial marketing yields an entertaining and educational presentation. Students gain the confidence and know-how to make sound financial decisions from the mundane, everyday transactions to the extremely important retirement accounts.

CA Community Colleges Branding Survey
The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office is undertaking work to better associate system branding with the initiatives and programs that it sponsors, administers and oversees. This is being done to better communicate the state Chancellor’s Office role within the system, and to establish publicly how and where the state Chancellor’s Office and Board of Governors provide resources for state mandated and state supported initiatives and programs. We are asking for your participation in a brief web survey (10-12 minutes) to help the Chancellor’s Office make decisions on a revision of its current seal/logo and on the creation of a wordmark to be integrated into the branding strategy. Participation in the web survey is voluntary.
The web survey can be accessed at: https://www.interactresearch.com/index.php?survey=cccco_brand
Access to the web survey is open until June 15, 2017.
We hope that you will consider participating as your input is valuable and important.
