Spelling Bee Champion

Local executives competed in teams to support the Burlington Sunrise Rotary Club and our local-focused literacy program - Imagination Library. The program delivers free books to local children from birth to age six.

It’s been a while since any of us participated in a Spelling Bee. How did we do? Our very own Liz Ford won the event! Great job Liz!

Eric Hanson's Investment Course is Offered at UVM

Eric Hanson is teaching a course, Personal Finance and Investing, through the Grossman School of Business at the University of Vermont during the Spring semester of 2017. This is an elective class open to the entire campus and described below. 

Description:
It has been said that Economics is about “the allocation of scarce resources”. This is also a good definition of Personal Finance. None of us – not even Donald Trump – have enough resources to fulfill all of our needs, and our wants. This course will be about how to accumulate financial assets, how to invest (and spend) your nest egg, figuring out how and when to borrow, and how to take care of the unexpected events in life.
