Spread the word

Educating your constituents about the importance of saving for higher education can be woven into your meetings, information fairs, and other events. We have a number of resources to assist you in sharing this important message.

Support from representatives

Our local plan representatives are a valuable information resource. These knowledgeable professionals can answer questions that community members might have on saving for higher education. You can call on a Direct Plan representative to:

•             Lead workshops on saving for higher education.

•             Speak at meetings.

•             Staff a table at a community fair to promote saving for higher education.

•             Discuss 529 plans at other events your organization sponsors.
