Dear NAEPC Members and Guests of Our Website:
Thank you for visiting our website!
The whirlwind that began in 2020 continued through 2022 and the board of directors and staff remain grateful for the ongoing support of the association's members, councils, sponsors, friends, and for the technology that allows us to stay connected each day. As I begin my presidency, I am hoping for a more traditional year that will allow the board of directors to focus on new initiatives, the continued recognition of NAEPC among councils and their members, and planning for the future.
We will continue to host virtual events for estate planning council leaders and staff executives, will add new benefits for Accredited Estate Planner® designees, and plan to approach the association’s activities with flexibility while prioritizing safety. It is also one of my primary goals to continue to strengthen the bond with the councils affiliated with NAEPC and the network of approximately 30,000 individual members within these councils by reinforcing the value of membership.
In the days and months ahead, please register to attend a webinar in the Robert G. Alexander Series. These live and on-demand programs are an excellent source of educational content. Now is also the perfect time to learn more about the Accredited Estate Planner® (AEP®) designation. Applications are being accepted and our program administrator, Susan Austin-Carney, is available to answer your questions.
Our national network of estate planning professionals has never been stronger. I encourage you to contact me at any time during the year with your questions and suggestions for how we can better serve you.
It is also an excellent time to get involved! If you have an interest in serving on a committee of NAEPC and being a part of our success, please let us know.
John T. Midgett, JD, AEP®
