Dear members and friends:

We hope this letter finds you and your families well during these unprecedented times.  Our Board of Directors is moving forward with our programming this year, whether in-person or virtual.  We will continue to provide our members and guests with a forum to connect with other estate planning professionals who share similar goals and interests.

Our top priority is and will continue to be the health and safety of our valued members, guests, speakers, and sponsors.  We are planning an exceptional year of events focused on keeping you informed of cutting-edge estate planning developments and related topics of interest.  Please mark your calendars as dates, topics and events are listed on the Council's website.

We will continue our goal of offering higher quality, nationally acclaimed speakers.  We will also continue to send out surveys after each meeting to get your feedback.  Please let us know how we can serve you better.

Our affilication with the National Association of Estate Plannng Councils (NAEPC) gives us access to many benefits and tools - including utilization of its national speakers' bureau, access to NAEPC's Journal of Estate & Tax Planning, as well as involvement at NAEPC's annual conference.  We encourage you to explore the educational programs and benefits offered by NAEPC and consider earning the Accredited Estate Planner (AEP).  Please browse our website for more detials.

Please look for your annual membership renewal letter coming soon.  The future of our organization and its continued success depends on our members and future qualified members.  If you have ideas for future speakers, topics or events - or if you wish to participate on a committee - please contact us via the website.  If you are not yet a member and are interested in joining, we encourage you to apply for membership using the application form on our website.

I am honored to serve as President of the Estate Planning Council of Delaware for the 2019 - 2020 year and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming meetings and events.
