Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) is proud to announce their partnership with Johnson C. Smith University to host the 2012 Community Empowerment Day on the university campus on Saturday, June 30, 2012.  Johnson C. Smith University is Charlotte’s premier independent urban university.  A half day of activities are planned to deliver financial literacy education and information to citizens in the community.  Community Empowerment Day provides individuals with free consultations regarding their financial circumstances and workshops to develop personal finance skills. Training will be available for local participants on how to use tools provided by UFSC and university partners (e.g., FDIC). Informative sessions are planned to understand consumer protections and mortgage refinancing options.  A Resource Fair will introduce the community to organizations that provide financial information and support.  The day is designed with the entire family in mind.  Financial literacy activities are incorporated into the youth Basketball Challenge, the Wii Bowling Tournament and the Children’s Activity Center.   It’s a family affair from 9:00am – 2:00pm.  The quest is to deliver financial literacy programming to individuals and organizations in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina metropolitan area. 

Community Empowerment Day is the culminating activity during the 38th Annual International UFSC Summit, June 27 – 30, 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina.  This year’s theme “Leveraging the Power of Leadership, Teamwork, and Inspiration” is designed to guide and equip financial professionals with resources to thrive in the ever-evolving financial services industry.   

The Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) formerly known as the National Association of Urban Bankers (NAUB) is an organization of minority professionals in the financial services industry and related fields. Affiliation with UFSC offers a unique opportunity to influence the shape of the banking and financial services industry. UFSC promotes the personal and professional development of its members as well as improvement in the financial condition of our ethnically and culturally diverse communities through education, home ownership, and local economic development.   For more information about the organization, please visit http://www.ufscnet.org/ .
