Dear Colleagues and Friends:
Thanks for your support of and participation in our Second Annual Financial Literacy Leadership Conference, held October 5-6, 2009, here in Washington, D.C. We are grateful for the financial support of our sponsors The Charles Schwab Foundation, Bank of America, and GMAC Financial Services, Inc. We also thank all of the many organizations that distributed information about the conference to their respective members and constituent groups. Your faith and trust in us is greatly appreciated.
A special thanks to those of you who have sent email messages or called to share positive views about the timeliness of the subject matter covered, the speakers, and the overall management of the conference.
We see great promise in the future of financial literacy. As we continue to work together to enhance the financial literacy of Americans, every household will become capable of maximizing, and efficiently, using the financial resources available to them during their lifetimes. This will ultimately lead to a more efficient and stable American economy.
We look forward to you joining us next year for our Third Annual Financial Literacy Leadership Conference.
