  • Keynote speaker Michelle Singletary will give you tips and ideas to help manage your finances. Michelle writes the nationally syndicated personal finance column, “The Color of Money,” which appears in The Washington Post on Wednesday and Sunday. Her award-winning column is syndicated by The Washington Post Writer’s Group and is carried in more than 100 newspapers. She is the author of three books, "The 21 Day Financial Fast: Your Path to Financial Peace and Free" "Spend Well, Live Rich: How to Live Well With the Money You Have" (Random House) and "Your Money and Your Man: How You and Prince Charming Can Spend Well and Live Rich" (Random House).  As part of her commitment to community service, Singletary volunteers as the director of "Prosperity Partners Ministry," a financial program she founded at her church, First Baptist Church of Glenarden (FBCG), in which women and men, who handle their money well, volunteer to mentor others who are having financial challenges.
  • Protect yourself and your family from fraud at a panel discussion with Delaware’s Deputy Attorney General Gina Schoenberg. Gina will join experts in utilities fraud and financial scams to prepare and forewarn you to take charge when scammers come your way.
