Professional Advisor Seminar

Every year, CICF brings a nationally known expert to speak on an important topic in estate planning, taxation or charitable giving, as our gift to the professional advisor community.


Wednesday, Oct. 25

8 – 11:45 a.m. | Seminar

Historically, low-interest rates have been the cornerstone of wealth transfer planning for the past decade. But that is likely to change with surging interest rates and low growth expectations. Thomas Pauloski, senior national director of the Institute for Trust and Estate Planning, will be headlining CICF’s annual professional advisor seminar. As always, this event is free and open to all professional advisors.
