If your family needed to find your medical records, could they do it in an emergency? How about your financial records? If not, let members of the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants show you how to skip that stress by creating a financial scrapbook. MICPA is offering a series of statewide presentations on financial scrapbooking during April. A financial scrapbook provides a single location for all-important records, such as insurance policies, retirement accounts, investments and other financial documents. Done well, a financial scrapbook offers comprehensive insights into a person’s financial situation and is a launching pad for future planning, emergency preparedness or end-of-life arrangements. These classes leverage MICPA’s financial expertise and are free to the public. They give attendees the tools to translate complex information into a concrete and concise snapshot of their financial affairs. It is important to have a clear understanding of personal finances, and financial scrapbooking is designed to address common issues, prepare for potential problems and identify resources. Session is led by Amber K. Gray, CPA and assistant professor at Adrian College

This meeting will feature a three-person panel with deep practical experience of solar power in Michigan. The Michigan Chapter of the Sierra Club is partnering with Michigan Solar Solutions, Solar Winds and McNaughton-McKay Electric Company to help Michigan Sierra Club members and supporters make their homes solar-powered! The partnership means these carefully vetted, qualified, residential solar-power installers and providers of the highest quality solar products can help move you into the clean energy column. Read more at https://sierrasemg.wordpress.com/your-own-solar-power/. Mark Ferda works at McNaughton-McKay Electric and brings to the panel expert knowledge of price and availability of solar panels, inverters and all the other components needed for a successful home and small business setup. Mark Hagerty represents Michigan Solar Solutions, which has some years of experience planning and executing solar installations. Mark Clevey is a member of the Ann Arbor energy Commission and the founder of the Ann Arbor Solar Users Network. His particular interest is in how local registration and licensing can either help or unnecessarily hinder solar panel installations. Each panelist will make a 15-20 minute presentation, and then the floor will be open for questions from the audience. Regular Sierra Club SEMG Membership meeting, 1st Thursday, monthly. Open to the public; any interested person can attend. 6:30-7:00 Snacks, socializing 7:00-7:10 Announcements 7:10 Presentation
