Part One: Organize and Declutter
Presented by Lynda Shrager
Take time to organize and declutter before a crisis occurs! Getting our ducks in a row provides a great amount of stress relief and prevents a ton of aggravation for those who will come after us. This presentation will teach decluttering and organizing skills because “you can’t take it with you”. We will go through the process of how to determine “who gets what” and how to get rid of stuff. We will wrap up with tips and techniques for tying up loose ends should we be called upon to close up a home.

Part Two: Digital Estate Planning — What You Need to Know
Presented by Dorothee Racette
Do you have a reliable way to stay on top of your computer passwords and digital banking transactions? The transition from paper-based to digital documents has resulted in “digital assets” that must be considered in estate planning. The presentation will focus on best practices for providing safe access to these assets for executors and discuss specific estate planning steps for online accounts. Attendees will receive a practical checklist for follow-up.
