Annual Meeting Announcement: 

The Real Estate Lawyers Association of North Carolina will host its annual meeting on February 25, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at The Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, 80 Carolina Vista Drive, Pinehurst, NC 28374.

This event is the kickoff for a productive year of work in several important areas and will feature a legislative panel discussion with Representatives Duane Hall, Darren G. Jackson, and David R. Lewis, moderated by Jim Harrell, who will also bring us his annual legislative update, presenting matters relevant to our membership. We are delighted to have these special guest panelists, and anticipate a lively, interesting discussion across a wide range of topics of interest to all of us.

It is important that RELANC members attend and engage with these legislators. Representatives Hall and Jackson are real estate attorneys licensed in North Carolina, and Representative Lewis was most recently Chairman of the House Rules, Calendar, and Operations Committee. Rep. Hall’s bio is on his firm’s web page at this link, and Rep. Jackson’s bio can be found on his firm’s web page at this link. Representative Lewis’ web site provides additional background.

 Another presentation will address the Electronic Notarization Program, with discussion led by Hunter Edwards using information provided by Ozie H. Stallworth, Electronic Notarization Director, in the NC Secretary of State’s office. We will also hear from Paul “Skip” Stam regarding important information which Map Act property owners, and you as their attorneys, should know about inverse condemnation and usual condemnation.

The cost to attend the one-day event is $50 and entitles you to the continental breakfast, meetings, presentations, lunch and CLE.
