For all of you who were able to attend, thank you for your participation in Abbott & Kindermann’s 20th Annual Land Use Law Conference. We appreciate your time, attention, and patience as we virtually came together this year.

On January 21st, 22nd and 25th of this year, A&K presented the live sessions for its 20th annual educational program for clients and colleagues interested in current land use, environmental, and real estate issues affecting commercial and residential development, agriculture, real estate transactions, easements, mining, and the construction materials production industry. A&K’s attorneys also provided several pre-recorded lecture videos located on our firm’s YouTube Channel, along with six handouts outlining the materials discussed in each video session. Participants were able to obtain AICP and MCLE credit for participating in this year’s virtual conference.

We welcome continued feedback as we look toward next year’s conference. Next year, we aim to look at a variety of virtual platforms that will be most compatible with participants’ security firewalls. Our goal is to host a combination of both in-person and virtual live sessions in 2022, as we heard many of you appreciated the ease of access to our conference from the safety and comfort of your homes. We further aim to provide participants with our handout materials ahead of the live sessions so participants can prepare questions and absorb materials ahead of time.  We also look forward to providing more video blogs throughout the year as part of A&K’s continuing education offerings. Please keep an eye out at our blog for more details on this project.

We look forward to seeing you hopefully in-person in 2022. We hope you are all healthy and taking care. Thank again for your time and patience and for participating in our 2021 annual conference.
