About Us

Thank you for visiting the Estate Planning Council of Lower Fairfield County’s website! Our Council was founded more than thirty years ago to promote the exchange of ideas among estate planning/wealth management professionals.

Our Council has over 100 members from varied disciplines: attorneys, accountants, bankers and trust officers, insurance professionals, financial planners as well as allied professionals.

We host four dinner meetings annually as well as three "Members Only" breakfast meetings. Our programs feature in-depth presentations on current estate planning topics and are preceded by time to network with old and new friends and colleagues. Recent dinner program topics included:

The Art of Board Compensation

When Breaking Up is NOT Hard to Do

Preserving Family Assets & Relationships: Addressing Addiction & Other Behavioral Health Issues

If you have an interest in joining the Council, please contact Membership Chair Robin Sherwood at (203) 972.8262 or robin@htgadvisors.com. She will be happy to answer all questions that you have about our Council. A membership application may be downloaded from this site under the section titled “Application Form.”
