Williams to advise on Family Farm Succession Planning
ELEANOR -- Carla Williams will discuss Farm Succession (Estate) Planning at a WVU Extension Dinner Meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 13, at the Eleanor Municipal Building, 600 Roosevelt Blvd., Eleanor.
"Succession planning is more than just a will," according to a news release from the WVU Extension. "If you want to pass your farm to the next generation, they'll need to be prepared to operate the farm as a business. This involves leadership, business management training and financial security for all."
Williams is vice president and personal trust manager at BB&T's Wealth Division. She practiced law for 18 years in the areas of estate and business succession planning, and finance and municipal bond law. Her experience includes comprehensive planning for clients with federal estate and gift tax exposure, with a niche practice in agribusiness and family farm succession planning.
Williams lives in Morgantown, W.Va., and serves on the Board of the North Central West Virginia Estate Planning Council. She is a native of Moorefield, Hardy County, W.Va., where she and her siblings were long-time members in 4-H, her brothers were officers in FFA, and her family has been involved in the poultry industry for many years.
For purposes of planning the dinner or for further questions, please call the WVU Extension Service Office to reserve your space at 304-586-0217.
This dinner meeting is sponsored in part by the Western Soil Conservation Service and the Putnam County Farm Bureau.
