Dear Real Property Law Section Members:
It is an honor for me to serve as the Chair of the Real Property Law Section (RPLS) for the 2022-2023 term. I want to first thank Jonathan Golding, our past Chair, for all of his hard work and dedication to RPLS. I would also like to congratulate the new Executive Committee members and advisors of RPLS, as well as our new Vice Chair Frantz Farreau and Treasurer Megan Beierle.
As we embark on a new term, we continue to face the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and the effects it has had on the practice of law, as well as new challenges brought on by the recent economic climate. In these changing times, our section continues to be fully committed to providing excellent real property law related content for our members through various RPLS channels, including but not limited to webinars, the e-News, and the Real Property Law journal.
Our section is also committed to making efforts to return to more in-person events and networking events. I know that many practitioners, including myself, are eager get back to attending in-person events. Building on the great success of the 2022 Spring Health and Wellness Retreat in Truckee, the 2nd Annual Real Property Law Section Health and Wellness Retreat and the 8th Annual California Women in Commercial Leasing Law Symposium will be held jointly from March 24 to 26, 2023 at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn in Sonoma, California. Please stay tuned for more details from our Health and Wellness Conference Committee in the coming weeks.
