In Conversation: A Series on Professional Collaboration

Limited Seating Available!

Join us May 7th for the next round of our “In Conversation” series as our guest panelists share and discuss how their collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to a recent matter achieved the best result for a mutual client.

CEPC’s Emerging Leaders group is focused on estate planners looking to accelerate their career growth and connect with like-minded individuals on the path to leadership excellence in the community. We also encourage established estate planning leaders to attend by bringing an Emerging Leader with them to help build this new initiative.
