The council is a member of the National Association of Estate Planning Councils.
Membership is open to all estate planning professionals; attorneys, accountants, investment professionals, financial planners, trust officers, business valuation professionals, insurance professionals, nonprofit professionals, home health care and senior care providers, and other related professionals.
An $85 membership fee is paid annually by each member. The membership year runs 7/1-6/30.
The Council holds monthly dinner meetings at which keynote speakers are invited to speak on specific issues of interest to estate planners. These events are held from September through May at the William Penn Inn, located in Gwynedd, PA.
Annually, the Council holds a seminar addressing a major estate planning topic of broader scope.
