ABOUT THIS EVENT FROM THE ZIONS BANK BRC:

Credit Matters: Know Your Score and More. Your credit score can affect what interest rates you are offered on loans, if you will be considered for certain jobs or even if you qualify for the best auto insurance rates. So how do you build and manage credit? This topic isn’t usually taught in schools or discussed at the family dinner table, leaving most of us to try to figure things out on our own. We hope we’ll get it right.

But hope is not a financial strategy. Our best intentions can sometimes lead to costly mistakes or misinformation that limit our personal and business opportunities. Learn how to take control of your credit by attending this complimentary workshop.

In this workshop, you will learn about:

  • Different types of credit and the cost of credit

  • What goes into a credit score

  • Where to access your credit report

  • How to identify and dispute errors

  • When and why you might need a credit freeze

  • How financial institutions and others use credit data for decisions

  • Good habits you can begin today to improve your situation

To Register:

  • Date: Thursday, February 21

  • Time: 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

43INC Featuring Oz Sanchez - Paralympic Gold Medalist

We invite you to join us for our next 43INC with a guest who embodies excellence in the face of adversity. Oscar “Oz” Sanchez is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who’s life changed forever in 2001 when he was involved in a hit-and-run motorcycle accident. The accident resulted in a spinal cord injury (SCI) and the inevitable paralysis and associated neurological complications.

After the accident, Oz’s biggest fear was being defined by his injury. As a result, he developed a new sense of direction and vigor for life. He pulled out of his post-injury depression and once again took a proactive approach to living by dedicating himself to education and hand cycling.

Oz is an elite hand cycle racer who has won gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Paralympic Games and he is also a five-time World Hand Cycling Champion which has earned him the title of “world’s fastest hand cyclist.”

Oz is a graduate of San Diego State University with a business degree and a minor in public communications and is currently pursuing a masters degree while training for the 2020 Paralympics.

Now, we have the opportunity to sit down with Oz and hear his inspirational story. We'll be at the Olympic Venue in Boise with food, drink, and a chance to connect with others involved with the M43 community. RSVP today!

  • Date: Thursday, February 7

  • Time: 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

  • Location: The Olympic Venue (1009 W Main St, Boise, ID 83702)

THIS WORKSHOP

Your credit score can affect what interest rates you are offered on loans, if you will be considered for certain jobs or even if you qualify for the best auto insurance rates. So how do you build and manage credit? This topic isn’t usually taught in schools or discussed at the family dinner table, leaving most of us to try to figure things out on our own. We hope we’ll get it right.

In this workshop, you will learn about:

  • Different types of credit and the cost of credit

  • What goes into a credit score

  • Where to access your credit report

  • How to identify and dispute errors

  • When and why you might need a credit freeze

  • How financial institutions and others use credit data for decisions
