National Association of Estate Planners and Councils

Unaffiliated Councils Overview

Formed in 1962, the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils (NAEPC) is the national organization for affiliated estate planning councils and professional estate planners. One of the pillars of our mission is the support of local estate planning councils and their members. It is our belief that the primary and most effective means for networking among the various disciplines is at the local council level and that the educational opportunity found within is of exceptionally high-quality and contribues to the profession as a whole, but also to the overall strength and viability of NAEPC and estate planning councils across the country.
