Whether an estate is worth $100,000 or $100 million, basic knowledge of the estate planning process is important for professionals like CPAs. CPAs need to help clients plan in order to protect their family, causes, and possessions that are important to them, now and in the future.
To help raise awareness on the importance of estate planning, John Baker Welch is hosting a 'CPE University Series' on October 24, 2012 that seeks to educate Chicago-area professionals on what to consider in establishing this life process.
