Clark Howard is a nationally-syndicated consumer expert who shows consumers ways to save more, spend less and avoid getting ripped off. His radio show is heard every day on more than 200 radio stations throughout North America. "Save more and spend less" is more than just a motto for Clark; it's a way of life. As a successful lifelong entrepreneur, media star and best-selling author, the Atlanta-based "consumer champion" is dedicated to helping Americans of all means get ahead in life.

As an Atlanta native, Clark has always been very involved in improving his community. He started several

civic programs, including Atlanta Volunteer Action, Volunteer Action, Inc., The Big Buddy Program and Career Action. With the help of his listeners, he has built 43 homes over 16 years throughout metro Atlanta for Habitat for Humanity.

In 1993, he opened Team Clark Howard (the Consumer Action Center) as an extension of his radio show to provide free off-air advice on consumer issues 45 hours a week. Team Clark Howard is now staffed by more than 140 volunteers.

Clark is a member of the Georgia State Defense Force. He joined after the terrorist attacks of 2001 to do his part in helping to prepare and assist our military. He attends monthly training workshops around the state as part of his service, and performed medical evacuation work in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

This lecture is provided as part of the Public Service Recognition Week events coordinated by the Stakeholder Advisory Committee of the UNF Master of Public Administration Program. 

A special thank you to our generous sponsors including Jacksonville Transportation Authority and the UNF Department of Political Science and Public Administration.
