Every generation needs to create their own ties to the land.

Family meeting around table

Ties to the Land Workshops near you!

Ties to the Land focuses on succession planning, the human side of estate planning. This workshop will focus on strategies to maintain family ties to the land from one generation to the next; building awareness of the key challenges facing family businesses; and motivating families to address the challenges. It is a facilitated and interactive workshop with DVD-based components that provides effective tools families can use to decide the future of their land.

Who is this for?

Successful succession is a collaborative effort.  We are committed to ensuring that the many individuals and associations that may be involved have access to the resources and support they need.   

Family land ownership issues

The differences among family members in values, goals and lack of critical skills can lead to disaster.
