About Us

The Greene County Estate Planning Council has been an outstanding source of information about estate planning developments, analysis and techniques for its members since 1959.

Council membership is carefully selected from Springfield, Missouri area professionals, and is comprised of Attorneys, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERtm, Certified Public Accountants, Chartered Financial Consultants, Chartered Life Underwriters, and trust officers-all pooling their knowledge and technical expertise for the advancement of informed estate planning.

The principal objectives of the Council are:

To foster a better understanding of the proper relationship among estate planning specialists from different disciplines and to bring those specialists together in one association; to further the education of members and the public in matters of estate planning; to encourage the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct.

As we move into the 2017-18 year, our council can reflect on an admirable history centered primarily on keeping its membership uniquely and comprehensively informed of cutting-edge estate planning developments and established strategies. Over the years, this has been accomplished by attracting national figures to address the membership; showcasing prominent local practitioners at educational monthly luncheons; providing monthly updates on significant recent estate planning developments, and much more.

The Greene County Estate Planning Council is excited to continue and build upon these fine programs and traditions during the coming year. The monthly agenda is, as always, ambitious, practical, and balanced among our membership disciplines.
