--Free event, open to public

 LARAMIE—Succession is the watershed issue facing America’s family farmers and ranchers.  Planning for a smooth ownership transition and preparing the next generation to lead is tough. 

If multigenerational success is your goal, then the Wyoming Farm Bureau Foundation has a presentation for you.  “Plan Success:  Five Keys to Effective Succession Planning” will be hosted by the Wyoming Farm Bureau Foundation on Nov. 14, 2013 in Laramie.  The symposium will feature Kevin Spafford, Founder of Legacy by Design, LLC & eLegacyConnect.

Spafford involves audiences in experiences that encourage action and generate results.  His speaking style is highly interactive which is both entertaining and educational.  Spafford has spearheaded initiatives over the last ten years to improve the way farmers, ranchers, and agribusiness owners engage in the succession planning process.  Through the five keys, you’ll learn about the planning process, good communication strategies, and how to overcome obstacles. Utilizing tips from this session will help ensure the agriculture operation remains in the family, and provides financial security and career opportunities for generations to come. 

The symposium is free and open to the public.  It will be at the Hilton Garden Inn in Laramie, Wyo. Thursday, Nov. 14 from 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.  Visit for the promotional flyer.
