Annual Meeting & Dinner Event
Please join us for our Annual Meeting & Dinner Event on July 20.
Our speaker, Marty Burbank, will provide us with a presentation on how he is changing the world - one classroom at a time. This message is heartwarming and inspiring and we believe it will touch our members as well as any guests, as this will not be a technical presentation.
The Evening's Topic: Treasure Hunting in a California Kindergarten
- As a group, Elder Law Attorneys tend to be compassionate and caring professionals. ElderCounsel member Marty Burbank had big plans to buy a new 40-foot sloop and sail off into retirement with his wife. Then, one Sunday sermon on giving changed everything. Hear his story of how he and his wife made national news with their decision that they should pay it forward by investing in the lives of 27 kindergartners rather than purchase their dream sailboat.
We will hold a short business meeting to review changes to the Bylaws and elect officers for the 2017 - 2018 year. Additionally, as a tribute to our Past-Presidents, who have carried our council through the years and helped Nevada emerge as a premier estate planning situs, we invite you to attend this dinner Free of Charge.
Early bird pricing ends July 15, 2017.
