New England Farm Succession Advisor Training
May 3, 2017 - May 4, 2017
Retiring New England farmers have identified a need for help to navigate the complex process of choosing the right farm business succession strategy and finding a suitable successor. Many also want technical assistance on specific aspects of farm succession and transfer. Exiting farmers need attorneys and other service providers who specialize in farm succession. Land For Good is hosting a two-day Farm Succession Advisors Training on May 3 – 4, 2017 at the Falls Center, Manchester, NH to build this professional support. The training will build skills and proficiency in assisting farm families through farm succession and transfer planning. It will also allow professionals to connect with other farm service providers in their state to deliver quality succession planning and assistance to farmers. Delivered by legal and other experts, this accredited course is approved for 12.5 CLE credits in VT and ME. Self-certification is available in NH, MA, CT, and RI. Professionals working with farmers, including experienced and new attorneys, law students, field staff, accountants, financial planners, land trust and conservation staff, and lenders are encouraged to attend.
