The workshop will cover planning for end-of-life decisions, including transferring finances and real estate, giving away personal possessions with emotional value and sharing values and life lessons with future generations.

The workshop will feature two speakers from Colorado State University: Jeff Tranel, an agricultural and business management economist, and Norm Dalsted, a professor and agricultural and business management economist.

Tranel has conducted workshops for thousands of farm and ranch families in Colorado and across the Western United States on succession and estate planning. Dalsted has spent his 35-year career working with farm and ranch families on financial management and estate planning.
