Dear Council Members,

Spring is here, and what a wonderful Spring it is indeed.  As our nation emerges from over a year of pandemic, we have an opportunity to change and grow as we resume a more public life.

As our professions contemplate our return to a new normal, we can educate our clients and the public about our professions, and how our services can best support our recovering and altered world. We can also remind ourselves and each other to take advantage of all resources available to us, including this Council.

In the days and weeks ahead, remember that we exist as a community of professionals to support one another.  There is strength in our solidarity with one another, that we have recently seen through our country’s health crisis.  As this new day begins, don’t hesitate to reach out and connect with one another for ideas and resources. Our Council’s membership directory is available online through your member login portal. We have launched new troikas, both virtual and in-person, so that we can connect with one another. This Council exists to support us all in our endeavors and we have recently learned how much we need one another.

We value and appreciate your membership in the Conejo Valley Estate Planning Council.  Thank you for contributing to our community; please thrive and grow together as we emerge into this beautiful new world.

Grace Durst
2021 President
