History of the Inland Empire Estate Planning Seminar, Inc. (IEEPS)

The IEEPS is the stand-out estate planning education seminar in the Inland Empire, bringing to this region the top planners and speakers from around the nation. It is the result of years of hard work by Joe Walloch and John Oliver. These two icons of the Inland Empire estate planning community devoted countless hours, days and weeks over the history of the seminar to put together the event that it is today.

After years behind the helm, Joe and John decided that they were ready to hang up their hats and asked a few like-minded individuals to continue the IEEPS seminar tradition. A non-profit entity was formed, IEEPS, Inc., to help ensure that the legacy of Joe and John continues to be a valuable resource to the Inland Empire estate planning community.
