New York Annie's Project will host Managing for Today and Tomorrow (MTT): Succession, Business, Estate, and Retirement Planning for Farm and Ranch Women. Classes will be held at Farm Credit East 25417, Burrville, NY starting Wednesday, January 27th and each Wednesday ending February 24th. The cost is $100.00 per person; fifteen hours of instruction (5 days @ 3 hrs/day). The time is 10am – 2pm. Lunch and all course materials are included.

Annie's Project is a nationally recognized educational program grown from its inception to serve over 12,000 farm women in 33 states. (http://www.anniesproject.org/). Its curriculums are designed to empower farm and ranch women to be better farm business managers, enhance conservation practices and agricultural sustainability, contribute to their rural communities, and be a positive influence on family decision-making. The MTT curriculum provides participants with the tools and resources to help begin the process of farm transitioning to the next generation and/or to an appropriate farm business ownership.

Participants will learn about business, estate, retirement, and succession planning from area professionals and subject matter specialists, most of whom serve agricultural clientele in their respective communities. Pertinent discussions accompany presentations including follow-up activities for family members to address at home.

This program is sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension, and supported in part by the Northeast Extension Risk Management Education Center, the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) award number 2012-49200-20031, CoBANK, Farm Credit East, New York FarmNet, NYS Agricultural Mediation Center, NYS Workforce Development Institute, and New York Agri-Women, Inc.
