Farm Succession Training for Legal & Financial Professionals:
A training opportunity specifically designed for attorneys, attorneys-in-training, financial management consultants, business planners, and tax accountants who work with farmers in New England on farm succession.
Over 10,000 New England farmers are likely to exit farming in the next decade. Most lack adequate succession plans. They need knowledgeable technical advisors to support and guide the complex planning process. New England farm families need more legal and financial advisors with relevant, up-to-date expertise.
This virtual training is creatively formatted to keep the momentum going. In addition, small group case and problem-solving clinics will allow for peer-to-peer learning and network building for legal, business and financial service providers in New England. Abundant resource materials will enhance the learning experience. Since there will be concurring sessions offered, all sessions will be recorded and available to registrants.
Continuing Legal Educations credits will be offered.
This training is supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, through the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program (subaward number ENE19-155: Improving Professional Capacity to Deliver Farm Succession Planning Assistance in New England). We have been offering farm succession planning assistance to farmers and farm families in New England and training to other professionals across the U.S. since 2004. This project builds from our previous regional training activities.
