IABG Summer Coalition Connection
We’re excited to share that we are launching the Illinois Asset Building Group Coalition Connection! These coalition meetings will be held twice per year, and will provide opportunities to network with asset building practitioners, learn about financial capability programs, and participate in our work to advance legislation that supports the financial prosperity of Illinois families.
The first IABG Coalition Connection is on Thursday, June 28, from 1:00-3:30pm in Chicago. Any individuals or organizations interested in financial capability in Illinois are encouraged to attend!
Register now to let us know you’re coming!
