Annual Summer Conference
The annual conference is a day and a half of presentations by a broad spectrum of Oregon attorneys providing timely and thoughtful information. The event rotates between Salishan and Bend. Section members have consistently provided favorable reviews, with more than 200 attendees each year. There is plenty of time for socializing throughout the event, except in years during pandemics.

Both 2020 and 2021’s Annual Summer Conference were webinar series, available at the Members’ Only page.

The 2022 conference was held at Salishan on August 11-13.

The 2023 conference is tentatively schedule for the Riverbend in Bend on August 17-19.

Spring Forum

The spring forum is a day-long CLE exploring a variety of fundamental issues for real estate and land use practitioners. Due to COVID, the 2020-2022 spring forums were postponed.

Luncheon CLEs
The section also holds a regular lunch speaker, who talks to section members on a timely real estate or land use topic. The lunch is usually held at noon in downtown Portland. For members who are unable to attend, recordings are made available at no cost.

The next luncheon CLE will be on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, starting at noon, at the Royal Sonesta in downtown Portland Downtown (fka The Hotel Monaco), at 506 SW Washington Street, Portland, OR 97204.
