March 29th from 12pm to 1:30 pm NGA Standards of Practice REGISTER HERE
Join us and Sally Hurme, a national guardianship expert on a review of the standards of practice for adult guardianship and conservatorship. The standards have recently been updated following the 2021 Guardianship Summit. Alaska has adopted these standards by way of engaging in guardianship and conservatorship cases so they are an important tool and guide for all those appointed. This session will be recorded and added to the ASAGA website. Contact hour certificates will be provided and CLE’ s have been applied for.
April 12th from 12pm to 1:30pm Right to Association REGISTER HERE
Lisa Wawrzonek with ASAGA will piggyback on the standards presentation and our Alaska Statutes to discuss how guardians should approach a protected person and their rights to associate with family members or friends the guardian might have concerns about or what others can do if they feel it is a concern. This presentation will be recorded and added to the ASAGA website. Contact hour certificates will be provided and CLE’ s have been applied for.
April 26th from 12pm to 1:30pm Powers of Attorney REGISTER HERE
For those who need assistance with decision making and managing their affairs, guardianship and conservatorship isn’t the only tool; but we want to make sure we’re choosing the right tool for the right need. Please join Senior Services Attorney, Eva Khadjinova with Alaska Legal Services Corporation to discuss Powers of Attorney in Alaska. She’ll dive into the two different forms, what they can be used for and how to set them up including who is an ideal candidate for a POA. Contact hour certificates will be provided.
