The Exit Planning Institute estimates that 4.5 million businesses (with more than $10 trillion in value) will change hands over the next decade or so. For owners of privately-held, owner-managed or family-owned companies who anticipate a transition of some kind, this heightens the need for a sound business succession plan—and to understand how a transition may impact their own financial circumstances. In this presentation, David Kinman will address the core issues related to business succession planning—from the key considerations to buying or selling a business to tax considerations and common issues that arise after transactions are consummated.

FPA Guest Policy
Effective 1-1-2014

In an effort to boost membership, we have removed the financial incentive to be a continual guest at chapter meetings. All first-time guests may attend chapter meetings at no charge. A guest’s second and all further meetings require a $50 charge. As an incentive to join, members receive great discounts for chapter meetings, our membership outing, and the Symposium, plus access to free CE in the Journal of Financial Planning. Between the networking, the continuing education, and the advocacy of our profession, we believe that the cost of membership is far exceeded by the value.
