Common Cents Conference
The CASH Campaign of Maryland and partners co-host the Common Cents Conference for practitioners. The conference is designed to address unique financial issues and programs in Maryland, DC, and Virginia. This conference gives attendees an opportunity to learn about the financial problems facing residents and innovative program models to help residents achieve all their financial dreams. The last conference was held on September 17th-18th in Fairfax, VA.
The Common Cents Conference is a 2-day regional conference that gives attendees an opportunity to learn about the complex financial challenges facing our community and discover research based tools that address these issues. The conference introduces practitioners to a variety of innovative program models and solutions they can use to assist the individuals and families they serve to achieve their financial dreams.
Now in its 7th year, the Common Cents Conference has grown to be one of the region’s best learning opportunities for a broad set of practitioners who care about helping individuals and families earn, keep, and save their money. We welcome VITA sites, financial education programs, non-profits, faith-based groups, Community Action Agencies, foundations, financial institutions, educational institutions, state and local agencies, workforce and housing programs interested in providing financial security services.
