SYRACUSE — The Estate Planning Council of Central New York — headed by Paul Torrisi Jr., of Skaneateles, as the organization's president — earned the Leonard H. Neiman and Walter Lee Davis Jr. Council of Excellence Award, the highest honor available to an estate planning council affiliated with the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils.
This award recognizes councils that are successful in their efforts to provide a multi-disciplinary environment for estate planning professionals within their community and honors those councils that work to grow their programs and services and to provide an exceptional member experience.
“It’s very exciting to be chosen for this award,” Torrisi, who lives in Skaneateles and works for Morgan Stanley in Skaneateles and Syracuse, said in a news release. “Our council is the third-oldest in the nation and was incepted in 1935, so I think it sends a strong message that we’re still innovating. We are honored and thrilled to be recognized as the best at what we do in the entire country.”
The award is named for two individuals who sought to strengthen the bond between NAEPC and its affiliated councils during their terms on the board.
Davis served as president of the association in 2008 and helped form the Council Relations Committee, a group of volunteer members charged with being a liaison between affiliates and the national association.
