Purdue Extension offering succession planning workshop series

The Purdue Extension Succession Planning Team is holding the workshop “Keeping the Farm Resilient in Uncertain Times” this winter for family farm operators interested in learning more about succession planning.

The program will guide family farm operators on planning the transition of their business to the next generation. Participants will learn about adapting and planning during uncertain times, determining if adding or changing operators is financially feasible, selecting the right business structure to transfer ownership and protect assets and communicating effectively for conflict management.

Extension educators and specialists will present during this series. The second night will feature attorney Tom Appel, who will discuss options to assist in transferring ownership and protecting assets.

The workshop will offer the following presentations from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.:

  • Feb. 8: Adapting and planning in uncertain times and financial feasibility: Is your operation ready for succession?
  • Feb. 15: Selecting the right business structure to hold, protect and transfer assets
  • Feb. 22: Conflict management: Effective communication strategies

The registration fee is $30 per person/household/farm. Register by Feb. 3 at tinyurl.com/PU-SP2021.
