RSVP for the DJCF/SWCF 28th Annual Professional Advisors Seminar



Planning for When the Circle of Life Begins to Close


The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation and Southwest Community Foundation’s Professional Advisors Seminar always presents nationally recognized authorities on estate planning and taxation. In its 28th year, our annual seminar provides an invaluable networking opportunity with advisors from around the metroplex, most of which cater to high-net-worth clients. Attendees enjoy a lavish breakfast and receive continuing education credits (CLE, CFP, CPE and CTFA - pending). The Foundation is happy to announce Thomas W. Abendroth will be this year's speaker.



Tom Abendroth is a partner in the Chicago office of ArentFox Schiff LLP and served as practice group leader of the firm's Private Clients, Trusts and Estates Group for twelve years. He is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. Tom speaks on tax and estate planning topics at banks and professional organizations and has contributed numerous articles to industry publications. Tom has taught at the American Bankers Association Wealth and Trust School since 1990.
