Scholarship funds Estate Planning Conference costs


Ross Riskin, vice president of Riskin & Riskin PC in Connecticut and founder and manager of Riskin Advisory LLC, received the 2016 P. Thomas Austin Personal Financial Planning Division Scholarship for his intergenerational approach to helping clients achieve their estate planning goals.

The annual scholarship is awarded to a CPA who has 15 years' or less experience in the workforce and less than 10 years' experience in estate planning. The scholarship covers the cost and related travel expenses of attending the AICPA Estate Planning Conference.

The scholarship was established in honor of P. Thomas Austin, a CPA who chaired the Advanced Estate Planning Conference for 30 years and is now chair emeritus.
