National Association of Estate Planners and Councils

NAEPC Council Relations Committee Roster

The Council Relations Committee has two charges - helping affiliated local estate planning councils take advantage of the benefits, programs and services offered to them by virtue of their membership and helping to affiliate those councils that are not currently members of the association.

Each affiliated local council is assigned a representative from the Council Relations Committee who serves as a liaison between the council and national board, this person is known as your territory representative. Use the drop down menu at the bottom of this page to find your council name, click, and the name of your territory representative will appear.  One more click and you'll be directed to contact details for your representative.

We are grateful to the committee for their time and expertise:
