Are You Financially Healthy?
12 p.m. - 1 p.m. Oct. 13, 2020
Join the VCU Office of Alumni Relations and the VACU Financial Success Center at VCU for this Zoom webinar featuring guest speaker Sylvia Watford, AFC, FFC, with Virginia Credit Union.
In this workshop, you will understand what it means to be financially healthy, which is so much more than the one score everyone asks you about today, your credit score. True financial health is based on four key components: Spend, save, borrow and plan. You’ll also get a chance to confidentially determine your own financial health score and the steps you can take to improve that score.
