A Message from your President, Chantal Stennerson.

Greetings! Welcome to the 2022-2023 year of the Red River Valley Estate Planning Council. It is an honor to serve as your President for this upcoming year. The Council Board is excited to bring our programming to you this year and hope that the members see the benefit of the valuable continuing education as well as the opportunity to network with your peers and colleagues.

As the Board has noted over the last few years, we have had a decline in membership through member retirements and job changes. We encourage you to reach out to your colleagues and other professionals you work with to get the word out about our organization and the quality programs that the Council can provide at a minimal cost.

Beginning this year, the Council has the opportunity to offer a scholarship through the Eugene Minske Professional Continuing Education Scholarship Fund. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide a year of membership dues to our Council. The applications for the scholarship can be found on the FM Area Foundation website .https://areafoundation.org/students/fmaf-scholarships/?term=minske We encourage you to reach out to someone in your Firm or practice area who is currently not a member to apply for this award.

Please feel free to reach out to me or any of the RRVEPC Board members to provide any suggestions or input on topics you would like presented at future sessions. We look forward to your feedback and suggestions.

We are honored to have your continued support of this organization and are looking forward to the 2022-2023 sessions!

Chantal Stennerson
