Delta Sigma Theta is a public service sorority that provides services to the community in five different categories. Those categories are economic development, educational development, international involvement, physical and mental health and social action. This inaugural economic development conference fits under the first category.
"The sorority has provided the Credit Matters workshop for several years," said Vera Moore, the sorority's Economic Development chairman. "However given the current state of the economy, the members recognized the community needed education on a on a variety of economic issues."
This conference, which is more conprehensive than the workshop, is designed to meet that need.
"We have been fortunate to get knowledgeable presenters who have volunteered to share their information and insights," Mrs. Moore said in the announcement.
Mrs. Moore said that sorority memebers hope that many will take advantage to learn more about money management issues from exeperts in the field.
"The community is invited and encouraged to come out and take advantage of this opportunity," she said. "We hope you will take time to invest in your future."
