This Month's Guest Speaker: Alyx Valdal - Qualifying for Life Insurance
Welcome to our group in Victoria B.C.! Please come and join us at our monthly parent meetings which will range from themed parent discussions, guest speakers and videoconferencing with guest speakers in Vancouver. We aim to learn from each other and to find out more about caring for our special children -let's navigate the world of rare disease together. New parents always welcome.
Topic: Qualifying for Life Insurance
Gone are the days of being automatically declined for pre-existing conditions – thank goodness! Join Alyx Valdal, Certified Financial Planner from MOOLA Financial Coached & Advisors to learn all about how to qualify for life insurance.
Alyx has been the secretary of the Vancouver Island chapter of Advocis – the financial Advisors Association of Canada – and is a member of the Financial Planner Standards Council. She has also served on the board of directors for Wear2Start and volunteers in elementary classrooms with BC’s Junior Achievement’s Dollars with Sense program for children’s financial literacy. Alyx was nominated for a 2013 Victoria Leadership award and is a member of the Oak Bay Rotary Club.
After graduating from Ottawa’s Carleton University, Alyx lived in England and Japan before returning to beautiful Victoria. Now, she is happy to live back homw with her husband and two young children where you’ll find them enjoying their neighbourhood water park, Willows beach, Crumsby’s and Fireman’s Park.
The first half of the evening will be dedicated to the above topic and the second half of the meeting will be open for discussions.
As it is really helpful for us to have an idea of who is able to attend, we would really appreciate people RSVPing to Jocelyn(email:Jocelyn.CarterSim@viha.ca) by Tuesday morning the day of the meeting. We understand that life happens and we won't hold you to coming but we like to have a sense for food and drinks as to who will likely be attending. Thank you in advance. :) This has been helpful in the past so really appreciate all those who respond.
Light refreshments will be provided at the meeting.
Our next meeting is scheduled for April 10, 2018.
New parents are always welcome. Drop-ins are welcome.
