In keeping with its public outreach program, the Brooklyn Bar Association, through its Foundation Law Committee, will hold an informative and vital session on Elder Law Issues on Oct. 15 at BBA headquarters, 123 Remsen St., according to Fern Finkel.
Barrister Finkel, who heads the Foundation Law Committee, will serve that night as program organizer and moderator when members of the public are invited to hear from experts on how they can “plan ahead” on Elder Law challenges.
Those who attend this free, open-to-the-public forum – which runs from 6 to 8 p.m. — will receive “an overview of financial and health care advance directives, financing long term care, and benefits available for the senior population.”
In keeping with her “Plan Ahead” agenda, chair Finkel advises that those attending will be provided with helpful handouts containing valuable tips dealing with legal and practical issues that impact on the senior community. Making it even more attractive for the “sandwich generation,” she also promises to provide light refreshments.
Heading the BBA this year are President Domenick Napoletano, President Elect Andrew Fallek, First Vice President Rebecca Woodland, Second Vice President Arthur Aidala, Secretary Hon. Frank Seddio and Treasurer Aimee L. Richter. Providing continuity while helping to preserve the BBA’s high standards is Executive Director Avery Eli Okin.
