Why Join

With the COVID environment upon us, the Council with feedback from our membership, has determined to conduct monthly meetings virtually.  We will offer two speaker meetings including continuing education credits and four "Happy Hour" networking gatherings.  We are hopeful by January we can begin to offer our normal monthly dinner meetings, which begin with cocktails allowing networking opportunities before dinner.  Dinner includes our noteworthy speaker and timely topics regarding estate planning. A pricing structure for membership in the fall will be determined later this year. 

An impressive variety of speakers and topics that include continuing education credits for CPAs, Attorneys and CFPs.

Networking opportunities with council members and professionals from other local organizations
