Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute continues with its Women Know: Financial Empowerment series to help women in the Chattanooga community take a more active role in managing their personal finances. Only two sessions remain in the series, and they each address topics that will benefit all women.

The remaining sessions will take place from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at United Way of Greater Chattanooga located at 630 Market Street. The next session, “What Have I Signed On To? Liability and Legal Considerations,” will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 13. This session will be presented by Julie Brandao, Vice President of BB&T Huffaker and Trimble; and the Honorable Christie Sell, Hamilton County Sessions Court Judge. 

The final session will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 20, and will focus on Estate Planning. Lee Ann Adams, Attorney with Gearhiser, Peters, Elliott & Cannon, PLLC, will provide information on how to control one's own estate and ensure that one's assets will be distributed as one wishes.

“Women are faced with financial implications in many stages of their lives. This series is designed to provide women with the tools they need to better understand their current personal financial situations and to develop a better financial plan for their future,” said Lesley Berryhill, managing director of CWLI.

The public is welcome to participate in the final sessions of this empowering program. Each individual session, which includes written materials and lunch, will be $25 for CWLI members, and $30 for non-members.
