Wakefield Business Alliance
March Meeting Minutes
Senior Life Skills Presentations - Feedback. Took place Feb 27th for the Seniors (Juniors will be taking the ACT).
Sessions were on Basic Budgeting, Credit & Contracts, Time Management, Common Workplace etiquette, Investing and protecting yourself from scams.
- Students had good feedback on sessions and many took away alot of what they called "life skills." They said that they would like sessions in the future on how to complete taxes, insurance, study skills for college, and what to look for in housing.
- Business feedback - Students asked good questions, sessions were not all seniors so we want to work on scheduling, student appeared interested in the topics presented.
- I think for the first year this was a success, however there are definite logistical changes that can be done for next year to ensure that we are reaching our target audience.
Reality of Money (April 25th) - We will be holding our Spring Reality of Money on April 25th. This will run from 8:00 - 2:00 with Simply Crepes lunch provided by InnoVector Tech.
