The objectives of the Estate Planning Council of Eastern New York, Inc. are: (a) to promote professional standards of excellence and integrity; (b) to offer educational and informational programs to its members; (c) to further the growth and scope of the estate planning activities of its members; (d) to encourage networking opportunities among members that establish and foster professional relationships; and (e) to promote the exchange of ideas and knowledge in the multi-faceted disciplines of its members.


Our Chapter continues to be recognized as a 5 Star Council by the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils as a part of the Leonard H.
