Three separate lunchtime seminars will take place on Monday, April 19, Wednesday, April 21, and Friday, April 23 from 12-12:50 p.m. The after-hours seminars will be held every evening, Monday, April 19 through Friday, April 23, from 5-5:50 p.m. Some of the specific lectures offered are Bonds 101; Financial Planning for Women; and Portfolio Design: Constructing a Proper Investment Plan.
