Welcome to the Peninsula Estate Planning Council! 


PEPC provides an educational and social forum for those professionals on the Peninsula in the San Francisco Bay Area who are most active in personal estate and financial planning. We are an affiliate of the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils and are an approved California State Bar Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) provider.


We have over 125 members and our meetings are well-attended, fun and educational. Typically, we have 80 to 100 members and their guests attending each of our regular dinner programs throughout the year.


Speakers at each meeting discuss topics of relevance in estate planning and of interest to the PEPC membership.  Meetings take place at the Foster City Crowne Plaza on the first Wednesday of most months. For 2017 - 2018, please mark your calendars for:
