Emerging Member Program

EM Program 2021 Application

The Chicago Estate Planning Council (CEPC) and its Diversity Committee are committed to making the CEPC an enriching, mentoring and inclusive environment where diverse members are welcomed and retained.

Accordingly, the Council is again offering the CEPC Emerging Members (“EM”) Program. The goal of the program is to give individuals with no more than two years experience in the estate planning field substantive mentoring and an opportunity to become involved in the work and future leadership of the CEPC. In the 2021 class, the CEPC Board and its Diversity Committee will select participants for the EM program for a 24-month term that will begin in August 2020 and conclude in July 2022.

To be eligible for the EM program, you must be employed in a position that would, after the appropriate amount of experience, allow you to become eligible for membership in the CEPC. Law students and graduate students studying tax, business and other fields related to estate planning are also eligible for the EM program. You must also have no more than two years of experience in estate planning to be eligible for the EM program.

EMs will:

1. Work with a CEPC Committee Chair or Board Member in the substantive work of the CEPC, who will serve as a mentor and teach you how to successfully participate in the Council.

2. Receive a CEPC Guide at each lunch or online meeting, who will be a seasoned CEPC member able to introduce you to other CEPC members and answer general questions about the topic of the lunch or online meeting.

3. Receive complimentary admission for select CEPC educational and networking events.

There is no cost to become a CEPC EM.

Please Note: Application Deadline is July 27, 2020.
