    The Exit Planning Exchange (“XPX”) Tri-State - covering New York (New York City & Long Island), Connecticut (Fairfield & Hartford), and New Jersey - is holding a regional Zoom event from 4-6PM on Tuesday, November 17, 2020. This is truly a “go to” meeting with core coverage areas including:

    The state of the economy and business environment, nationally and regionally.

    Wealth planning, the corresponding tax implications and how the specific factors play into the merger & acquisition environment as we close out 2020 and leading into 2021.

    Our Speaker

    Phil joined the University in 1981 as one two additions to the department to substitute for the retirement of Fr. William Hohmann, S.J. His undergraduate degree is from Providence College, his masters from Northeastern University and his Ph.D. from Tufts University, all in economics.

Chapter Events


We could not have quality programming without our sponsors!





The most valuable part of my participation with XPX is the education about exit planning that I have received from attending meetings and from all the members. XPX is a very approachable group. Everyone is willing and interested in an exchange of ideas. I especially like the Power of Three which enables you to get to know other members better.

Dick Albu, Albu Consulting LLC

I really enjoy the small group interactions at XPX which is different from other organizations. I have also received an engagement from a XPX member.

Alan Booth, Executive Leadership Advisor

XPX offers excellent content based seminars specifically geared towards professionals focusing on the sale or transition of a business. The diverse topics and membership provide strong networking opportunities. Both the targeted content and diverse membership, focusing on bringing advisors together as a team to help the client, help XPX stand out from other organizations.
