Do you own or care for farm or forest land? Many small landowners want to preserve their family lands and businesses, but don't know how to involve a next generation in ownership and operation. |
Succession Planning--the human side of Estate Planning--focuses on ways to maintain family ties to the land from generation to generation, building awareness of key challenges of family businesses and motivating families to address those challenges.
If you don't have a solid succession plan in place, and you care what happens to your farm or forest land down the road, young or old we encourage you to attend this workshop.
You'll learn what can happen when there is no plan in place and gain the skills and tools necessary to prevent that from happening to your legacy.
This workshop will take place over two Thursday evenings: March 6 and 13, 2014; 5:00 - 9:00 PM. Dinner will be provided. Location is the WSU Snohomish County Extension Cougar Auditorium, 600 128th St SE Everett, WA
Working through the Ties to the Land Workshop as a family or landowners, you will receive information about legal and economic aspects of transferring farm and forest lands from one generation to the next.
