Debt, Credit Scores, and Retirement Accumulation – What your employees struggle with and how you can help

Overview: We spend 12-16 years in school, yet never learn how to ‘Adult’ when it comes to our personal finances. As this avoidance approach has run through multiple generations, it is apparent that we need to raise the importance of implementing ‘Financial Education’ into the workplace. We’re going to work together and dismantle the most ‘complex’ financial topics to hone in on what’s most important to improve financial trajectories.

Speaker:  Trevor Mickelson has spent his career in the arena of risk mitigation and financial education. His mission is to help every organization and their employees and clients realize daily opportunities to turn debt into wealth, protect their livelihood and safeguard their future for generations to come, and most importantly, help all strive to do what they love!  Trevor has previously presented to our chapter and has given presentations at the Rocky Mountain Payroll Conference the last few years.  He is engaging and will truly give you valuable information that can last a life time!

We invite you to come join us for a delicious catered speaker luncheon. The cost of your first chapter visit/lunch is only $10!  Subsequent meeting costs will be $25.00 for NCPA chapter members.  The Non-member cost is $35.  See Membership for more information.  An R.S.V.P. is required to attend a meeting by emailing us at ncpchapter@gmail.com.  Monthly meetings are held at the Loveland Chamber of Commerce, 5400 Stone Creek Circle, Loveland, CO.  The business luncheon meeting will start promptly at 11:30 a.m.  Speakers will present from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.

In our monthly chapter meetings we strive to provide you with the most current information possible. The speakers that we invite to present to our chapter members are professionals who are experts in their field. They come equipped with the most up-to-date legislative, payroll, or HR-related information to help make your payroll efforts more efficient and precise.
