Friday's event is titled “How to Manage Your Financial Life During Turbulent Times,” and will begin at noon in the 4th Floor ballroom of the Student Union, located at 65-30 Kissena Boulevard in Flushing.
Steven Malin, an economics professor at Queens College and organizer of the forums, said the events are a benefit to the college as well as those who attend.
“We do this as part of our outreach to he community, and for us it helps to cement our relationship with not just the speakers and the sponsors of the event, but to the very many businesses in the community that we interact with all the time,” he said.
The forums are free and open to the public, and Queens College encourages everyone to attend, especially local small business owners. In addition to the lecture, participants will have the opportunity to network.
