About the 4th Annual
Regional Council Leadership Day Conferences

Regional Council Leadership Day is typically a learning and sharing experience for volunteer leaders and executives from estate planning councils within the same geographic region, but this year we are taking the program national with a virtual delivery.  This means that your council will have the benefit of interacting with those from across the country who share a single mission: helping their council thrive! 

Regional programs are open to all estate planning councils and each council is encouraged to send multiple officers and the council executive / administrator.
