HISTORY OF THE EPC OF MEMPHIS, INC. The Estate Planning Council of Memphis, Inc. was initially organized in 1968 as an unincorporated association. The original Articles of Association were modeled after the Estate Planning Council of Birmingham, AL. The first meeting was held on April 23, 1968, at the Summit Club and Don Pemberton, attorney, spoke on Revenue Ruling 67-463. The first president was Kenneth F. Clark Jr., attorney. The first membership roster lists a total of 41 members, consisting of 9 Trust Officers, 13 CLUs, 7 CPAs and 12 Attorneys. The intial annual dues were $50.00. On December 6, 1976, under the leadership of President Eugene Greener, Jr., attorney, the Council was converted into a Tennessee not-for-profit corporation when a Charter was issued to the Estate Planning Council of Memphis, Inc. by the Tennessee Secretary of State. The Council has operated in this form since that time.
