Madison College Retiree Association Current Semester Schedule
January 6 Meeting
Estate Planning Basics – January 6 at 9am
Estate Planning Basics will cover the basics of estate planning, including discussions on: powers of attorney, wills, trusts, and the probate process. Join us for a morning exploring what Wisconsin law has decided for you, and what it has not. Estate planning comes down to taking control over who will act during your illness or disability as well as who will handle your affairs at death & distribute your assets. You will also gain a few creative suggestions on how to leave assets to a charity outside of updating your will or trust. Wisconsin Lawyer Melinda Gustafson-Gervasi will lead this session.
Learn about the Badger Honor Flight. Usually, they fly about 90 veterans to Washington D.C. for the day as a way to give them an all-expenses-paid opportunity to see the monuments erected in their honor. Turina Bakken, Madison College Provost will also speak about campus updates.
