Beyond Wills and Trusts: Other Estate Planning Essentials

Time:          7:30 to 9:00 a.m.

Location:    The offices of Gibbel Kraybill & Hess LLP, 2933 Lititz Pike

Everyone needs a will, but that’s not all you need to accomplish your estate planning goals. Attorney Doug Smith discusses other tools, including:

  • Placing with the will a letter about faith and values;
  • Using a separate memo to direct distribution of certain household and personal effects;
  • Using retirement account beneficiary designations to fund charitable gifts;
  • Donating appreciated property to charity and retaining a lifetime annuity for yourself and your spouse, with remainder to charity after your demise;
  • Designating a primary and alternate beneficiary for retirement accounts, so that the proceeds do not pass under the will;
  • Giving gifts during your lifetime;
  • Ensuring that your estate plan complies with agreements governing business interests;
  • Keeping a separate record of  lifetime gifts that shall be deemed “advancements” that reduce what the recipient otherwise would receive under the will;
  • Benefits and risks of joint accounts or pay-on-death accounts to implement your goals;
  • Titling investment assets to save income taxes after death and increase flexibility for a surviving spouse;
  • Funding a revocable trust;
  • Considering umbrella liability and long-term care insurance coverage;
  • Granting broad powers in a Power of Attorney;
  • Organizing your financial records and leaving instructions, files or a clear paper trail in case of your death or incapacity.
  • Living Will and Healthcare Power of Attorney.

A light breakfast is included.

30 to 50 percent of sexually abused children are the victims of other children and teens under the age of 18. Leaders and employees at schools, churches and other nonprofits often lack the tools to address what is quickly becoming one of the most urgent and perplexing issues of our time. This seminar begins with an overview of the problem of child-on-child abuse, and continues with break-out groups on Children and Teens with Sexual Behavior Problems, Child-on-Child Incidents and the Mandated Reporter, and Title IX and Duties of Care in the Wake of Suspected Abuse.

GKH attorneys Dwight Yoder, Jeff Worley and Ann Martin join Cathleen Palm, founder of the Center for Children’s Justice, and Linda Crockett, director of Samaritan Counseling Center’s Safe Church/Safe Places program, to present this cutting-edge seminar to equip leaders to meet this challenge.

Safety and Freedom: Students’ Rights in the Public School Setting

Date:          Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Time:          12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

Location:    The offices of Gibbel Kraybill & Hess LLP, 2933 Lititz Pike

Teachers and school administrators have difficult jobs. Education can only occur in a safe environment, and establishing that environment is a baseline for any school. In enforcing school rules, however, it is important that teachers and administrators exercise discretion and treat each circumstance appropriately. Students have constitutional rights that must be protected. Moreover, the disciplinary actions taken by a school can have significant effects on a child’s future. It is important for parents, students, teachers, and administrators to understand how these factors interact in the school setting.

Attorneys Jason Asbell and Sheila O’Rourke will present on students’ constitutional rights in the public school setting, including the right to free speech and expression and the right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures. They will also discuss due process rights, with special attention to disciplinary procedures and protections in public schools.

This seminar is a must for parents and students who desire to navigate the competing claims of safety and freedom.

A light lunch is included.
