Tax & Legal Seminar
The Jewish Community Foundation created the annual Tax & Legal Seminar in 1993 to provide an educational opportunity for financial and estate planning professionals.
Since 2001, the Tax & Legal Seminar has been a collaborative presentation of the Jewish Community Foundation and the Arizona Community Foundation. It has grown to be recognized as the premier educational seminar of its kind in Arizona, and is attended annually by hundreds of Arizona’s leading financial and estate planning professionals.
The 2020 Tax & Legal Seminar will be held on Friday, November 13th at The Westin Kierland Resort and Spa, featuring acclaimed keynote speaker, Chris Hoyt.
The seminar may qualify for up to 4 hours of CE credit for attorneys, CPAs, life underwriters, and CFP® licensees.
