Treasurer of State Dennis Milligan is bringing a national women’s financial education conference to Arkansas. Alongside the State Financial Officer’s Foundation, Milligan’s office is bringing the Smart Women Smart Money Conference to Rogers.
Smart Women Smart Money is a free conference that provides women with information essential for a healthy financial life. The Arkansas conference will be held at the Arkansas Arts Academy in Rogers on Friday, May 3, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“I am excited to be able to continue the work my office has done to bring financial literacy awareness to the State,” Milligan said. “In an effort to build upon that success, we’ve partnered with the State Financial Officers Foundation as they work to bring these important financial literacy conferences all across the country.”
The conference was founded in 1999 by Idaho State Treasurer Ron Crane. Arkansas will become the first state to hold the conference outside of Idaho.
“We are so proud to bring the Smart Women Smart Money conference message that it is never too late, or too early, to learn about finances to the great state of Arkansas,” said Derek Kreifels, President of the State Financial Officers Foundation (SFOF), which is based in Kentucky.
