About the Series

Finance and financial wellness are the top of mind for local government employees, both nationally and in our region. A new report from MissionSquare Research Institute finds 88% of public service employees are worried about their finances and financial decisions. Among those who worry, 77% report doing so while at work, an increase from 66% in 2019.

Central Pines Regional Council is excited to announce a year-long pilot partnership with CIVIC Federal Credit Union to bring virtual and in-person financial wellness training to our membership from September 2023 to June 2024.

Workshops will be held on the third Thursday of every month, with one in-person option offered quarterly. Workshops are open to any local government employee within the Central Pines region, with no cost to register.
