Central Arkansas Estate Council Home

Welcome to the Central Arkansas Estate Council website … Where great estate-thinking minds come together!

Central Arkansas Estate Council (CAEC) is a group of estate planning professionals interested in networking, learning, and growing to always be one step ahead of the issues their clients face. We are a group of area professionals looking to tackle the real issues of real-life estate planning. Trust officers, attorneys, CPA’s, CFP’s, private bankers, planned-giving officers, and insurance professionals all gather four times a year to take off their “corporate representative” hats and delve into the many issues that are faced while planning and resolving trust, estate, and investment cases.

We like to think that being a part of CAEC gives our group members a professional edge!

Founded in the 1950s, the Central Arkansas Estate Council boasts a membership of professionals working in the Central Arkansas area, that specialize in legal, accounting, insurance, investment, trust and valuation professions, as well as representatives from various charitable organizations.  The Council is committed to expanding estate planning knowledge and expertise, growing professional contacts & relationships, and, ultimately, enhancing the community by facilitating superior client service.
