Financial Literacy Information

While we no longer have a MOAACC Chapter sponsored investment club we now have the next best thing.  Our MOAA Cape Canaveral Chapter has made arrangements with the local BetterInvesting investment club on Patrick Air Force Base to welcome our chapter members and their families to their monthly meetings.  The club meets on the 2nd Thursday every month (except June) at the Patrick Air Force Base library at 1230.  From 1200-1230 the club holds a “Lunch & Learn” mini-series covering various personal investing topics followed by the club’s meeting at 1230.  All are welcome to attend.  The club is coed and the only restriction is that you must be able to get on post.  This is a very active club that is involved in other financial literacy activities on post and actively participates in Patrick AFB’s Retiree Day events -- again, with the focus on family financial literacy.

MOAACC members who are interested in starting their own investment club should contact Bob Houle at bob.houle@gmail.com for information.  

This latest initiative is part of an ongoing program our Chapter has to help members and their families learn how to invest for their future financial independence.  Our program includes a partnership with local  BetterInvesting volunteers.  BetterInvesting is a non-profit organization that teaches individuals and investment clubs how to employ fundamental analysis to become successful long term investors in quality growth stocks. They have agreed to assist us in helping our membership on their journey to financial independence.  Their mission "... is to provide a program of sound investment information, education and support that helps create successful lifetime investors."  We look forward to viewing BetterInvesting's various internet webinar based courses for our members and members' extended families (eg, your grandchildren) on how to invest for their future financial independence.

During Money Smart Week last year our chapter's members attended two free online webinars that have been produced to directly support our Chapter's Financial Literacy initiative. The first, "Make Your Child (Grandchild) an Investing Genius" was presented by Marla Britton. On Thursday of that week, another webinar titled "Why Start Investing -- NOW!!" was presented by Bob Houle.   

Both these presentations are part of the Financial Literacy program our Chapter has established to help members and their families learn how to prepare for their future financial independence. It carries on the theme of the articles we've published in The Intercom over the last year and provide additional information for you to use and share with your family.
