Farm Succession Coordinator Certification Training
Mon, Apr 24, 2017, 8:00 AM – Wed, Apr 26, 2017, 1:00 PM CDT
The International Farm Transition Network and Drake University Law School are offering a Farm Succession Coordinator Certification Training on April 24-26th at the Drake University Legal Clinic in Des Moines, Iowa. This training is for individuals interested in becoming a Certified Farm Succession Coordinator. This program is offered to lawyers, agricultural professionals, service providers, educators, and organizational leaders who work with farm businesses on succession issues.
Succession planning is not only the transfer of assets, but also the transfer of labor, skills and decision making. It requires financial analysis to ensure the business can support the goals of all the members and requires planning and communication skills. Many farm businesses are realizing the importance of creating a succession plan and the value of a skilled facilitator to lead the process of clarifying their goals and ideas, exploring options, and coordinating communication. A facilitated process can lead to better informed business planning and estate planning decisions.
This seminar has been approved for 14 hours of Iowa continuing legal education credits, including two hours of ethics.
