There is a free offer that everyone should know about. The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors is providing free monthly educational presentations about personal finance to the public.
“The Basics of Investments” is the next presentation and will be on December 4th from 10 to 11 am. Most people have read about stocks and bonds or have heard people talk about them but this is the opportunity to get the basics about what they are, how they operate, risks associated with each and what might be appropriate for you.
Future topics include:

To register for the meeting log on to the NAPFA web site at http://www.napfa.org/ then click on the “Consumer Webinar” logo on the right. It is as easy as that.
