AUBURN – Alabama State Treasurer and Auburn alumna, Kay Ivey, will be the featured speaker at the Auburn University College of Human Sciences’ Women’s Philanthropy Board 2007 Fall Luncheon on Friday, Oct. 5, at 11:30 a.m., at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

Ivey, a 1967 Auburn graduate, will discuss “Today’s Decisions for Tomorrow’s Money,” the first part of a year long educational partnership with the College of Human Sciences’ Women’s Philanthropy Board.


“Whether saving for retirement, planning for college, setting your financial goals, or even reducing debt, today’s decisions have lasting effect on one’s financial lives,” said June Henton, Dean of the College of Human Sciences. “We are thrilled that State Treasurer Kay Ivey will work with us in furthering the WPB mission to provide educational opportunities to help women achieve independence in their financial decisions.”

Ivey cites empowering citizens with access to information so they can take charge of their personal finances as one of her “taxpayer principles.”

“Through this partnership between the State Treasurer’s Office and the Women’s Philanthropy Board, I believe that we can help people gain skills and confidence in managing their money,” said Ivey.

As a student at Auburn University, Ivey was the first female elected vice president of the student body, the first female president of the SGA, and was named by five campus organizations as Most Outstanding Senior Woman.

The mission of the WPB is to inspire, educate, and enable women to develop their full leadership potential, achieve independence as financial donors and decision-makers, and serve as mentors for future generations of philanthropists. The board’s activities are sponsored by the membership and corporate partners including the Alabama Power Foundation, Citi Smith Barney, Moore Wealth Management, AU Office of Outreach, The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center, and the Flower Store.

Tickets for the October luncheon are $40 and tables of 10 are $400. Seating is limited and available on a first come first served basis. For information, contact Sidney James Nakhjavan at (334) 844-9199 or wpbchs1@auburn.edu or www.humsci.auburn.edu/wpb.
