Calendar of Upcoming Events

Our 2024 forum is October 24th and 25th and will be held at the Watson Event Center, Lakewood, WA. We’re excited about the theme, Leading the Way: Embracing Financial Belonging. Building on last year’s forum, we will explore what it takes to create conditions where all Washingtonians feel they belong and can achieve financial well-being.

Our team of planners is hard at work creating a powerful agenda. Our goal for the forum is that people across sectors will come together to learn together and from one another.

Who should attend?

  • Financial institutions, government & financial regulators, community-based organizations, and educators (K-12 and higher ed.) who provide financial products, services, or programs to low-income and marginalized Washingtonians, and are interested in increasing financial inclusion and financial wellness
  • Decision-makers and influencers in financial product and program design
  • Those working in financial wellness*, especially those working directly with communities to connect people to safe, affordable, accessible financial products and services
  • Those wishing to get more engaged in financial wellness* work going forward

* Financial wellness includes those who offer financial coaching, counseling, education, or other financial services, or who have key financial conversations with clients, customers, or community members

Registration will open in mid-August, so please check back soon. We hope to see you there!
