February ASNCOC Events: Special Needs Trusts and Valentine's Day Coffee

No matter how young your child may be, it is never too early to start planning for their future. Estate planning might not be the most fun topic, but it certainly is a critical one. This month the Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNCOC) welcomes attorney Andrew Branan of the Branan Law Firm, PLLC, who will introduce parents to special needs trusts.

On the lighter side of autism, the ASNCOC monthly coffee gathering happens to fall on Valentine's Day this month. Details for both events are below. See you there!

Coffee Gathering:

When: Friday, February 14th from 10 - 11am
Where: Caribou Coffee on the corner of Franklin & Estes Streets, Chapel Hill
What: Join us in the back meeting room for coffee and casual conversation. The coffee gatherings are a great chance to meet parents, grandparents, and others who care about someone on the autism spectrum. We look forward to seeing new faces and old friends!

Chapter Meeting: Special Needs Trust:

When: Tuesday, February 19th from 7 - 9pm
Where: Extraordinary Ventures 200 South Elliott Road, Chapel Hill (across from Whole Foods)
What: Andrew Branan from The Branan Law Firm will explain the ins and outs of Special Needs Trust and planning for the future. This meeting is open to families of individuals with any special needs. It is never too early to start planning!

Childcare and Spanish translation available. Please email asncoc@gmail.com if you need childcare or Spanish translation for our planning purposes.
