Dean Barbara Glesner Fines and Professor Chris Hoyte

The Kansas City Estate Planning Symposium (KCEPS) announced at its annual meeting the creation of a KCEPS  Faculty Scholar position at UMKC School of Law.  Professor Chris Hoyt is the inaugural holder of the title. KCEPS has been an extraordinary partner with the School of Law since 1981, collaborating on the three annual continuing legal education programs, establishing the KCEPS Prize for students, and endowing the Myron Sildon Endowed Scholarship. In establishing the KCEPS Faculty Scholar title, the organization honors this partnership and the extraordinary contributions of Professor Chris Hoyt to the organization and to estate planning nationally. A member of the faculty of UMKC Law since 1981 teaching in the field of taxation, estate planning, and charitable giving, he has long served on the board of the Symposium and its annual conference planning committee.  For many of the national programs, Professor Hoyt was the only Kansas City area resident who has been invited to present at the conference.  Professor Hoyt is nationally recognized for his expertise in estate planning and charitable giving.  He was elected an Academic Fellow in  the American College of Trust and Estate Council (“ACTEC”) and was inducted into the Estate Planning Hall of Fame by the National Association of Estate Planning Councils. Congratulations to Professor Chris Hoyt, the KCEPS Faculty Scholar.
