Stephenson County Farm Bureau and HCC Foundation to Co-sponsor Estate Planning Seminar
2/27/2015

The Stephenson County Farm Bureau and the Highland Community College Foundation will co-sponsor an estate planning workshop, entitled, "How to Keep Your Estate Plan Up-to-Date... And Avoid Family Feuds!" on March 23 and 24. 

Participants have a choice of coming to an evening workshop at the Farm Bureau that includes dinner, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Monday, March 23, or a morning workshop at Highland that includes breakfast, from 7:30 to 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2015.

Keynote speaker for the event is Marc Carmichael, J.D., an attorney who has written and spoken extensively on estate planning to groups of attorneys, fundraisers, and consumers since 1976.

 "Having a good estate plan is essential, even for those who have modest assets.  It not only helps avoid feuds later on, but allows a person or a couple to engage in planful stewardship of what they do have, and make sure that their hard-earned dollars, land, and other assets are utilized in ways that support the values they held dear during their lives," Carmichael said.

After his presentation, Carmichael will facilitate a panel discussion by local professionals with expertise in different aspects of estate planning, including: Jim Endress, financial planner; Doug Freidag, CPA; Kam Stake, trust officer; and David Shockey, attorney. Audience members will have an opportunity to pose questions to the panel.

This workshop is open to the public. RSVP is requested by March 16, by calling the HCC Foundation at 815.599.3413 or emailing foundation@highland.edu. Participants are asked to identify which workshop they will be attending when they RSVP.
