Anoka-Hennepin offering reimagined financial education seminars to district staff

Financial Education (11/20/19) For the fourth straight year, Anoka-Hennepin, in conjunction with Capital Street Financial Services, Inc., is offering financial education seminars to district staff.

This year, the seminars are being reimagined, with different stages, or paths featuring seminars built for where a person may be in their career journey. Maybe you’re a recent college graduate who is just starting your career. In that case, you might be interested in the first stage, Getting Started, which includes topics such as financial basics and life insurance basics. There are three stages in all (see the brochure), which also includes Grow and Acquire for those employees in their middle years, and Retirement for those who are nearing retirement age. Each stage has a slightly different focus.

The goal of the seminars is to provide innovative ideas to help Anoka-Hennepin employees maximize the use of their employer-provided benefits. The district also wants to increase awareness of the issues that have the greatest potential impact on the financial security of employees.


The first Getting Started and Grow and Acquire seminars have already been heldThe third seminar of the year is the Retirement seminar path, and will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 10, at the Educational Service Center (ESC), located at 2727 N Ferry St., in Anoka, and registration is now open. Attendees are asked to RSVP to attend all seminars.

Each seminar will be held three times during the school year, so if you can’t make it to one, you’ll have other opportunities. Learn more about the different paths and the topics that will be covered by visiting the Capital Street Financial Services website


Sessions are about two hours long and are open to all Anoka-Hennepin employees at no charge. In addition, each employee may bring a guest, if desired.
