National Estate Planning week will begin on Monday, October 18 2021 and will extend to October 24, 2021. National Estate Planning week was adopted in 2008 "to help the public understand what estate planning is and why it is such a vital component of financial wellness."
The National Association of Estate Planners & Councils (NAEPC) is the association of choice for estate planning professionals. The NAEPC is made up of 2,000 Accredited Estate Planner designated professionals, 270 affiliated local estate planning councils, and 30,000 members with ongoing education and a forum for networking within the estate planning community.
The NAEPC had this message for Councils:
NAEPC's goal is to work with affiliated local councils to reach every American annually with a reminder about the need for estate planning. It is our hope our councils will host education events, call-in phone banks, and seminars each and every October to help spread the word: YOU need estate planning TOO!
As leaders in the estate planning community, your members have first-hand experience with the challenges Americans face with regard to saving, investing, and planning for their future. As an estate planning council, you have the ability to make a significant impact in your home community.
