Posted Jun. 11, 2012

The second annual Ask the Panel seminar on estate planning, taxes and medical directives will be held on Friday, June 15, from 9 a.m. to noon in the Moulton Hall Ballroom, 800 Hilltop Dr. on the Kent Campus. The lecture is presented by the Center for Gift and Estate Planning and is free and open to the public. To register, call 330-672-0421, or visit  by Wednesday, June 13.

The panel features four local experts on estate planning and asset management, tax changes, and documenting medical wishes. There will also be information on options in charitable planning.

Doors open at 8:15 a.m. for registration; a continental breakfast will be served. The seminar begins promptly at 9 a.m.

This year’s panelists are: Paula Divencenzo, tax manager, Kent State University; Michele K. Keith, attorney, Flynn, Keith & Flynn, in Kent; Alice Yoho, patient advocate, Robinson Memorial Hospital; and Mindy Aleman, executive director, Gift and Estate Planning, Kent State University.

"Understanding what you need to ensure that your medical directives are known and that your assets are protected is a very significant topic. We also feel that many of our donors enjoy learning that there are ways to provide for loved ones and for the charities they support,” notes Aleman. 

The Center for Gift and Estate Planning is part of the Division of Institutional Advancement at Kent State, and provides charitable planning services for the eight-campus university system. It serves as a resource to the advancement team in the division, as well as alumni, emeriti, faculty and staff, and friends of Kent State who wish to remember the institution through their estate plans.
