Record-breaking Conference!

Along with our partners, Kent County Tax Credit Coalition and the Latina Network of West Michigan, Project GREEN is honored to have another successful Economic Empowerment Conference on the books. Thanks to our enthusiastic registrants, this year’s conference attendance broke records with a 60% increase in attendees over last year! Our phenomenal speakers discussed personal finance topics for money heroes of every age and life stage. Here’s what our post-survey respondents had to say:
  • 96.97% would likely or very likely recommend a future conference to others
  • 90.6% agreed or strongly agreed that they have a better understanding of personal financial management topics after attending the conference
  • 100% reported that the conference met or exceeded their expectations
We’d also like to congratulate this year’s Grand Prize drawing winner, who will receive $500 towards a life insurance policy premium that will provide coverage up to $250,000!
