Succession Planning

Passing on the farming operation can be an emotional and difficult process. It is one of the biggest challenges that a family in business must cope with and planning for success is essential.

Succession planning can help protect your assets, your business and your family. With the changes that lie ahead in farming, now is a good time to start those conversations and make sure you and yours are able to plan ahead for success.

This online session will be led by Christine Malseed, an Accredited Facilitator offering independent, confidential solutions to family succession planning.
