President?s Message
ACTEC Foundation President Martin Hallby Martin Hall,
ACTEC Foundation President

ACTEC Fellows and other attendees of the 2015 Annual Meeting, please join me in thanking the ACTEC Foundation Board of Directors for their many contributions to another successful year of foundation activity.
The Foundation Board is asked to consider many worthwhile funding proposals. There are two approved grants that I would like to highlight. As outlined more fully later in this newsletter, the Board made a new grant in November 2014 to the National Judicial College to complete the funding of an innovative project ? Probate Matters: Education for Judicial Officers ? designed to train probate court judges and other personnel on the National Probate Court Standards and other fundamental probate issues. And, working closely with ACTEC?s Legal Education Committee, last summer the Board provided the funding for the next academic symposium entitled The Centennial of the Estate Tax: Perspectives and Recommendations. These significant deliberations, which will review the current estate and gift tax laws, consider alternative systems and delve more fundamentally into the appropriateness of taxing wealth transmission, will be held on October 2, 2015, at Boston College Law School.
Of Note
The ACTEC Foundation, through a grant to the National Judicial College, is supporting an innovative project ? Probate Matters: Education for Judicial Officers. The National Judicial College?s Judicial Edge e-magazine for April provides an update on this project, noting that it is on track to be completed by the end of the year.
The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel Foundation announces the 2015 Mary Moers Wenig Student Writing Competition is open. Law students are invited to submit original, unpublished papers examining a broad range of topics in the trust and estates and related taxation areas by June 12, 2015. Please see the official rules for the competition.
Mission and Vision
The ACTEC Foundation promotes: (a) scholarship and education in trust, estate, tax and related areas of the law by supporting scholarship to improve the law and by encouraging teaching, careers and life-long learning in the area; and (b) civic engagement of individual Fellows of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel through programs and activities which serve the general community, including those who are at risk and underserved.
