  • financial preparation and goals;
  • the importance of saving and investing;
  • stocks, bonds, options, and mutual funds;
  • market timing vs. time in the market;
  • risks and rewards, opportunities and cautions,
  • and a practical exercise.

“John and I look forward to sharing practical information that can help individuals better manage their personal finances,” McGee said. “This workshop can serve as the foundation for a well-informed personal finance strategy and help participants develop a long-term plan for their financial future.”

The forum is sponsored by American Momentum Bank and will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day in the Blinn-Bryan Student Center (Building F). The $50 fee includes lunch and materials. For more information and to register, please call 979-209-7201.
