Trust Talk in Selinsgrove

If you have not yet attended a presentation about the new Pennsylvania Uniform Trust Act since its effective date in early November, 2006, then I invite you to visit beautiful Selinsgrove, PA, on the evening of Thursday, April 26, 2007, and attend a PA UTA talk sponsored by the Susquehanna Valley Estate Planning Council as presented by . . . me.

The dinner session will be held at the
Susquehanna Valley Country Club, located at One Country Club Road, Hummels Wharf, PA 17831 (570- 743-1714). Directions are available here.

A "social gathering" will begin at 5:30 pm; and dinner will be served at 6:00 pm. Then I will review the highlights of the PA UTA using a PowerPoint presentation refined in my speaking on the topic at previous seminars sponsored by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute & the York County Estate Planning Council.

I will also mention some of the adjustments in the PA UTA that likely will be
introduced to the Legislature during this Session from the Joint State Government Commission, upon recommendations by its Decedents' Estate Advisory Committee. Such technical corrections would clarify a few unclear PA UTA provisions or correct some internal inconsistencies of the new Chapter 77, Probate, Estates & Fiduciaries Code. Such an anticipated "omnibus" corrective bill is in a drafting stage at the JSGC staff level.

The cost of the dinner & session -- for both members and first-time visitors -- is $20.00. Not a bad deal for a good meal & a topical talk too.

According to
SVEPC's President, Marvin Rudnitsky, Esq., and JoLynn R. Weikel, a paralegal, both at the law firm Rudnitsky & Hackman, LLP, in Selinsgrove, PA, reservations can be accepted until Noon, on Tuesday, April 24th. Email requesting a reservation can be sent to Jolynn at:

I look forward to being there that evening with a fine group of Central Pennsylvania professional advisors & administrators.

"And when I asked the name of the river . . . and heard that it was called the Susquehanna, the beauty of the name seemed to be part and parcel of the beauty of the land . . . that was the name, as no other could be, for that shining river and desirable valley."

--Robert Louis Stevenson, 1879
