Learn How to Protect Your Assets and Make Your Medical Wishes Known at Free Kent State Seminar

Posted Jun. 1, 2012

The 2nd annual Ask the Panel seminar on estate planning, taxes and medical directives will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, June 15, at Kent State University in the Moulton Hall Ballroom, located at 800 Hilltop Drive in Kent, Ohio. The lecture is presented by Kent State’s Center for Gift and Estate Planning and is free and open to the public. To register, call 330-672-0421 or visit by Friday, June 8.

The panel features four local experts on estate planning and asset management, tax changes and documenting medical wishes. There also will 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; Michele K. Keith, attorney, Flynn, Keith & Flynn in Kent, Ohio; Alice Yoho, patient advocate, Robinson Memorial Hospital; and Mindy Aleman, executive director, Gift and Estate Planning, Kent State.

“Understanding what you need to ensure that your medical directives are known and that your assets are protected is a very significant topic,” Aleman noted. “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.”

The Center for Gift and Estate Planning is part of the division of Institutional Advancement at Kent State, and it 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.
