This year's two-day event is co-sponsored by the New York State Bankers Association and the New York State Society of CPA’s, and will cover a wide range of the most timely and important topics in trusts and estates practice—particularly the latest on estate tax reform and practicing in uncertain times. Prominent authorities from across the nation will cover the latest developments in all aspects of trusts and estates law. Detailed written materials will accompany each of the presentations.
There will be plenty of networking time, permitting you to pose questions to the presenters, compare notes with fellow practitioners in the legal and banking fields and visit with sponsors. A luncheon on the first day of the program and a cocktail reception on that evening after the program ends will afford opportunities for networking and enjoying the company of your colleagues in this field. A prominent guest speaker will make a topical key note address at lunch on the first day.
