    It has been 10 years since the PEPC Ethics committee published the PEPC Ethics Matrix in the Trusts and Estate magazine.

    The matrix itemizes how each of the various estate planning “disciplines” deal with the ethical issues that confront us in day to day practice in the various ethics rules. This original FIVE Cs that are addressed in the Matrix are Confidentiality, Conflicts, Competence, Compliance and Compensation. This year we plan to add two more “Cs” – Collaboration and Communication. .

    As you may know, the Philadelphia Estate Planning Council celebrated our 75th Anniversary in 2016.  Throughout the years, our logo has stayed fairly similar with only a few minor tweaks.  The PEPC Board of Directors  felt that it was an appropriate time to redesign our logo for this milestone anniversary year.  We conducted an online logo contest and received nearly 150 entries from graphic designers around the world.  After much review and discussion, the Board approved the colorful, modern logo above.  We hope you enjoy it too!
