Financial and personal security extends beyond saving, investing, insurance, fraud mitigation and identity theft prevention. Since we now manage much of our financial and our personal lives, via computers and handheld devices, we need to ensure we can recover from electronic catastrophe. The key is proper backup planning and discipline. 

Scott Snyder, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) and leader of the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) Madison Special Interest Group will share insights from his decades of computing experience, exploring why backups are crucial and what options exist to protect our digital lives, i.e., software, hardware and cloud-based tools.

Food pantry contributions:   Grace Episcopal Church Food Pantry

Both cash and checks payable to GRACE FOOD PANTRY will be accepted.

Parking:   Enter Oakwood grounds at the traffic light at Island Drive and Mineral Point Road. Take the left fork and then the second driveway on the right to enter visitor underground parking. Push the button for assistance. Park in any visitor stall; take elevator to first floor lobby where signs or a receptionist will help. When you exit the underground parking the garage door opens automatically. You may also park in a surface visitor spot (marked spaces along the drive and up the hill toward the large lot). On foot, enter Heritage (6205 Mineral Point Road) at its main entrance (third driveway on the right, at stop sign) or enter the auditorium doors directly from the lower drive.

Registration:   Advance registration is required. If you are not registered in advance, you may not receive handouts.  If you or your companion registered for this seminar but cannot attend, please email or call the UWRA Office.
