You are invited to attend a SUCCESSION PLANNING WORKSHOP FOR LANDOWNERS “Take steps to guide the future of your land” on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at the Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT. Many woodland owners want to pass their land on to their heirs. Unfortunately, due to a lack of planning or inadequate planning, the majority of woodland ends up being sold outside the family. Preserving your legacy requires planning, and that involves more than just having a will or an estate plan. Succession planning expert Mary Sisock will present Leaving a Land Legacy, what you really need to know to make it work. Wherever you are in your process, this workshop can help guide your actions toward satisfying your vision for the land. Learn the steps of a successful succession plan through a combination of presentation and practical exercises. The workshop will be held at Lake Morey Resort, 1 Clubhouse Rd., Fairlee, VT from 9am to 3:00pm (Registration begins at 8:30am) and costs $35. Each additional family member is $20. The fee includes morning coffee and lunch; plus materials. Directions available on the registration form available at www.vermontwoodlands.org.
Complete and return with your payment by May 11th to Vermont Woodlands Association, PO Box 6004, Rutland, VT 05702-6004. Registration is limited to 20 people so don’t delay. For more information contact: VT Woodlands at 802-747-7900, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The workshop is funded in part through a grant from VT Housing and Conservation Board, Forest Viability Program and Working Lands Enterprise Initiative.
