Facing first-time loans as a college student or a new mortgage as a third-time home buyer both come with risks, opportunities and, of course, questions. To help upstate New Yorkers navigate these complex decisions, WMHT and WAMC join NPR to bring NPR Presents: Family Matters to Albany for a conversation about money at the University at Albany Recital Hall on October 15 at 7:00 PM. Tickets for the free event are available here.
In collaboration with NPR Member stations, NPR Presents: Family Matters is a live national events series that connects regular people with financial experts for invaluable conversations around money. Led by NPR Morning Edition host David Greene, Business correspondent Yuki Noguchi and Business reporter Sonari Glinton, these live (and lively) events are driven by an audience ready to talk strategy: from accumulating debt and amassing wealth; to saving for college, home ownership, retirement and even fitting in a midlife extravagance, or two.
In Albany, Greene and Noguchi will be joined on stage by personal finance experts Louis Barajas, founder and chief wealth and business manager at LAB Financial Life Solutions, and Michelle Singletary, nationally-syndicated personal finance columnist for the Washington Post, to leave audience members with greater confidence in their financial futures.
