TESTIMONIALS

As an accountant STEP membership has been invaluable in building a specialist practice. It has provided me with professional recognition and credibility within a global multidisciplinary estates and trust profession. The education, networking and also the ability to contribute to policy and advocacy in this space have all been priceless.

"STEP provides exceptional educational events, resources and networking opportunities for members. Our branch is often approached by Government bodies to provide important feedback on proposed legislative changes that impact trust and estate laws."
