Farm estate, transition workshops planned at Imperial, McCook

Farm succession, estate planning
Monday, January 22, 2024

Nebraska Extension in partnership with Mid-Plains Community College will host estate and transition planning workshops for farmers and ranchers in Imperial and McCook in February.

Nebraska Extension Educator, Shannon Sand, will offer tools and strategies to effectively plan, start, and complete estate plans, offer background on common mistakes during the process, and highlight essential considerations for creating and carrying out estate and succession plans.

Preceding Sand’s presentation an attorney or panel of estate planning professionals will be available for questions.

“The common mistake is that most know that they need an estate plan, but never get around to putting a plan into a legal document,” Sand said. “Over several years, at the end of the workshop, the most common comment is that the participants wished that they had started learning the steps to start and complete a plan sooner.”

In Imperial, the workshop is set for Feb. 6 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (MT) at the MPCC Imperial Campus (1324 Broadway). The registration fee is $45, which includes lunch. Pre-registration is due by Feb. 2. To register call 308-882-5972.

At McCook the workshop is free thanks to sponsorship of the event by Community Hospital Foundation. It will be Feb. 8 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (CT) at the McCook Community College Student Union, (1200 E. Third). While this workshop is free and lunch is provided, pre-registration is due by Feb. 2. To register call 308-345-8122.
