Succession Planning Coverage a Hit

BY STUART KESSLER

Congratulations on two very fine articles “ Preserving the Family Legacy ” ( JofA, Mar.02, page 34) and “ Pass the Baton Without Missing a Beat ” (page 43). As chair of the AICPA succession planning conference, it was great to see the exploration of these important topics.

I implore all JofA readers who found the articles of interest to come to our conference to be held on December 5–7 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. We will be covering in depth the issues that were raised in both of those articles and will provide CPA practitioners with information that can help expand their practices in the family and business succession planning area.
