Atlanta Technical College’s event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Monday, April 24, noon to 1 p.m., at 1560 Metropolitan Parkway, Building G (in the library), Atlanta.
Lane’s presentation is part of Money Smart Week, a public awareness campaign observed nationally April 22-29 to assist consumers in managing their finances.
“I work very hard to ensure that I provide information and resources that consumers find helpful in their daily lives,” said Royal. “… I am especially honored and excited about partnering with Atlanta Technical College for National Money Smart Week. I’m of the opinion that we can have fun and enjoy life while managing our money exceptionally well.”
Royal said her “smart money” book provides links to websites that offer countless dollars in savings and more than 500 job sites with openings and opportunities for career advancement.
