Weathering Financial Storms

A Resilient Future for North Carolina Families

About the 2024 Forum

Too many of us are unprepared for an economic downturn or even a modest financial emergency. According to a 2022 survey by the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, 37 percent of American households reported they would be unable to cover more than a month’s expenses if they lost their main source of income.

The 2024 Emerging Issues Forum on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2024, examined financial resilience: the ability to financially withstand and recover from economic challenges. Speakers and participants offered best practices and actions that can be taken by households, policy makers, financial institutions, employers and others.

The 2024 Emerging Issues Forum is part of IEI’s larger Project Resilience initiative, supported by Local Government Federal Credit Union.
