The 34th Annual Land Use Institute
Local government land use decisions affect economic development and quality of life. They can also create major challenges to efforts by property owners to develop and use their property, as well as to residents as they cope with growth and change. The annual Land Use Institute program, now in its 34th year, addresses and analyzes the state-of-the-art efforts by government to manage land use and development, but also presents the key issues faced by property owners and developers in obtaining necessary governmental approvals. In addition, the entire approach of the program is to provide practice pointers that give immediate "take-home value" by focusing on topics relevant to the average practice of the attendee. This year all sessions will take place over the course of one day (Thursday) - allowing attendees to either join the ABA State & Local Government Law Section's Spring Meeting on Friday or plan other networking activities on the Friday.
The Spring Meeting of the State & Local Government Law Section
Day 2 of this exciting event is the Spring Meeting of the State and Local Government Law Section - this year, the theme is "Government in the Age of Information Technology and Social Media" The day's focal points are the challenges and benefits that the use of social media and advances in information technology present for state, local, and tribal governments, as well as for those whose businesses and personal lives are affected by government use of social media and IT. This comprehensive program offers legal and practical insights for those who represent state, local, and tribal governments as well as those who represent private parties on matters involving those governments.
Join key industry professionals as they address a breadth of complex issues:
- From the monitoring of student social media posts to address security concerns, to the regulation of government-employee speech through social media;
- From an exploration of advances in technology, to an analysis of steps to address cybersecurity; and,
- From the ethical implications of electronic communication, to the implications for advancements in IT on government transparency.
Registration options allow you to attend both programs for a discounted price, or one-day registrations are available for those with competing commitments.
