Audience - any comment to Carlos' question from your experience? Thank you Carlos!
Lisa Massena, Massena Associates
Thank you Andy and Carlos - other comments, friends?
Mary Morris (Virginia529)
Virginia absolutely has benefitted from the work done by OR and CA and IL - they have been unbelievably helpful to anyone interested in moving forward with a program! It would have been so much more difficult without the assistance and information provided by those states and the wonderful, brilliant folks leading those programs.
Treasurer Godlewski
Yes… we’ve worked closely with Oregon and discussed possibilities of an MOU and having a interstate agreement in pulling our resources together to provide retirement

Carlos - in Virginia we have a rigorous Personal Finance and Economics curriculum required to graduate from high school. It is done in modules and covers both education savings and retirement savings among many other topics. VA529 has been involved in supporting the development of this curriculum and had input on the education savings module.
