Join the EPI Community Forum

EPI sessions often spark high-level and sophisticated conversations with your peers. Those conversations are no longer confined to the chat on the side of the sessions, gone with the end of the session. Continue the conversation on the EPI Community Forum. Make even more lasting and meaningful connections with the presenters and your fellow seasoned estate planning practitioners who have valuable experience and perspective to share.  

Your 2024 EPI registration will allow you to access and interact with the Forum for a full year. A full year to bounce ideas around a community of your peers. A full year of conversations about every estate planning development as it comes up. A full year of offering and receiving valuable advice and recommendations from others you know. 

“I really believe in what you are doing. I am a better lawyer because of CEB.”

“I really enjoyed this two-day session.”
