RE: AFT to Offer Student Debt Clinic
We've all heard a great deal lately about the growing problem of student debt and it should come as no surprise to anyone that many of our members are struggling with student debt issues. Many younger members have incurred a high level of debt from their own education and many older members have taken on debt to educate their children.
On Wednesday, June 1, at 4:00 p.m., the Nassau and Suffolk regional offices will jointly offer a Student Debt Clinic at the Nassau regional office presented by AFT's Higher Education department. The 90-minute clinic will focus on identifying strategies and resources to help members manage, and in certain cases, reduce their student debt.
A Student Debt Clinic brochure and a registration form are attached to this email. Please share this information with your members. Interested members should complete the registration form and return it ASAP to Diane Fazio at the Nassau regional office, 1000 Woodbury Rd., Suite 214, Woodbury, NY 11797 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
