The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command will host nationally-recognized speaker, author, lecturer and law professor Conrad Teitell for two workshops – one for professionals and one for the public – on choosing the best charitable life-income plan and estate planning on Tuesday, May 10.

The event, “Choosing Wisely Among Charitable Life-Income Plans,” is geared for professional and technical advisors. The event will be held from 8:30 to 1130 a.m. on Tuesday. A second seminar for professionals will be held Wednesday, May 11 at the Double Tree Hotel in Tulsa. Both qualify for Continuing Education Credit.

The public workshop, “SMART ESTATE PLANNING… For Yourself, Your Family and The Salvation Army,” will be held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 10 at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club, 7000 NW Grand Blvd. The Tulsa workshop will be 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 11 at the Southern Hills Country Club, 2636 E. 61st St.

Teitell is a popular lecturer, practicing lawyer, writer and professor. He is known throughout the United States for his ability to translate complicated laws into understandable English. He has been featured on televisions programs on taxes and estate planning, and he joined Warren Buffett in testifying at the U.S. Senate Finance Committee hearing on the federal estate tax revision.

The seminar for the public will include practical talk combined with a healthy dose of humor as he gives guidelines for sound estate planning –– from avoiding unnecessary taxes to keeping a plan up to date. Estate planning involves much more than passing property on to others at death. He will also talk about how to provide for yourself, your loved ones and The Salvation Army, as well as the latest estate, gift and generation-skipping tax laws.
