Ties to the Land Workshops
What to expect?
The material will be similar between locations, so families can attend a workshop of their convenience, or split their participation among locations. This is a two part workshop. The expectation is that attendees will attend both sessions.
The first of the two-part workshop series was held in fall 2012 before the holidays when family members often come together. The follow-up workshop will take place in January/February 2013. The second workshop will be repeated in each of the locations identified below.
The first workshop focused on learning the steps to succession planning, clarifying values and goals for the family forest, taking home tools to determine heirs' interests, gaining knowledge of legal and other business considerations, and understanding the financial impacts of ownership transfers across generations.
The follow-up workshop will focus on financial and legal approaches and tools (trusts, limited liability companies, easements, etc) and specific resource management planning approaches.
At this workshop you will:
- Learn the steps of succession planning
- Clarify your values and goals for your family forest or ranch
- Take home tools to determine your heirs’ interests
- Gain knowledge of legal and other business considerations
- Understand the financial impacts of ownership transfers across generations
