Over the past 22 years, The Seminar Group’s Oregon Land Use Law Conference has established a reputation as one of the region’s preeminent land use seminars, and one that should not be missed. Once again, we have gathered the best professionals in the Oregon land use system to share their thoughts and wisdom regarding the most relevant land use topics. We think you will agree that this year’s program has an excellent blend of individual speakers, topics and informative panel presentations.
This conference is a must for land use practitioners, planners, federal, state and local government employees, land use decision makers, developers, citizens and anyone who works and participates in the Oregon land use system - whether it be the private or public sector. Come join your land use colleagues and learn the latest of what’s happening in this interesting and ever changing area of law.
