Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Greater Dallas (CCCS of Greater Dallas), a non-profit provider of credit and housing counseling and financial education, announces it will host a town hall to discuss improving financial literacy in our community. The free financial education panel is open to the public and will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Oct. 27 in The Oak Corner Room at the Center for Community Cooperation, located at 2900 Live Oak Street in Dallas.

Personal finance author Elisabeth Leamy will join consumer finance experts Alfreda Norman, community affairs officer for the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas; Pamela Yip, finance writer for the Dallas Morning News; and Todd Mark, vice president of education for CCCS of Greater Dallas to address helping consumers recover from financial crises caused by the recession and creating financial stability. The financial experts will also cover how corporations and other community stakeholders can play a role in improving financial literacy.

“With our country’s continued increase in foreclosures and slow recovery from the recession, financial literacy is more important now than ever,” said Todd Mark, vice president of education for CCCS of Greater Dallas. “We are very thankful for the participation of the personal financial experts who are helping educate the public on the need for increased financial education in our own backyard.”

In addition to the foundation blocks of financial literacy, event topics will include:

  • Surviving and recovering from unemployment
  • Managing debt levels
  • Building and maintaining good credit
  • Building savings and other assets
  • Creating best practices to create stability and security moving forward
