CHAIRS | Alexis Jenkins &  Sandra Turner-Becks

The Economic Development Committee implements programs to help the community achieve financial fortitude by setting and defining goals, developing plans to achieve them, and by putting the plans into action. The process serves as a blueprint to address all aspects of personal finances. 

The ten components of Financial Fortitude include: Goal Setting, Financial Planning, Budgeting, Debt Management, Savings & Investments, Retirement Planning, Homeownership, Insurance, Estate Planning, and Entrepreneurship. The initiative helps members of the Sorority spread financial education throughout their local communities.
