IGFA is presenting a four-part series on the Fundamentals of Guardianship (& Conservatorship) beginning March 28, 2019. The training was developed by the National Guardianship Association (NGA) and will be offered in a class room setting facilitated by professional guardians and fiduciaries.

These webinars are geared toward all (family and professional) guardians and conservators who are newer to their responsibilities and those wanting a refresher. We will be reviewing the NGA Ethical Principles and the Standards of Practice that elaborate on those principles, as well as the Fundamentals of Guardianship. We will be using the recorded webinars from the National Guardianship Association; discussions will be facilitated by experienced local guardians and conservators.
