California Summit on Financial Literacy.

Join us April 26 in Sacramento for the California Summit on Financial Literacy. This groundbreaking event, hosted by CalCPA and the California Jump$tart Coalition, will gather together California and the nation's thought leaders in personal finance education to assess the state of financial literacy in California, create a vision of a more financially literate state and provide solutions to fight financial illiteracy. Consider this:

* The savings rate in the United States is negative 0.2%.

* Credit card use has topped $2.16 trillion, up from $1.09 trillion a decade ago.

* Personal bankruptcies topped 2 million in 2005, a 32% increase over 2004.

* Almost 5 million Californians live below the poverty line.

And as a CPA you are uniquely positioned to help us empower Californians to make smart financial decisions. Join us at the California Summit on Financial Literacy and learn how you can contribute to the solution. With you, tomorrow really can start today. Spacre is limited. Reserve your place at the table today, www.calcpa.org/summit.
