    on point and delivered effectively

    The supporting materials for "too many entities" was lacking. The real estate fixes was an excellent program. Disaster Planning was a bit more general, but having rebuilt my practice after Harvey in Rockport, my knowledge is a bit more in depth in some areas. I also was on the State Bar FEMA committee back when we had one in the mid 1990s. Learned a lot from the tornado in Fort Worth and the Houston floods.

    The speaker successfully never got around to discussing renewable energy. What a waste of time.In addition, the speaker is a dull presenter. Please do not let come back!

    Good overview. Glad to find that my company already employs the processes and tools discussed.

    Voice modulation would create a more dynamic presentation. The material is top notch.

    Good subject. Would like to see more on Climate Change and the law, both US and International

Session 2: Deconstruction and Reconstruction: New Life For A Dead Mall - Developing and operating a large retail shopping mall, with several separately-owned anchor stores, requires carefully drafted and coordinated covenants, restrictions, access easements, joint parking agreements, operating agreements, ground leases, and other real estate interests. But what happens when this use of the property becomes obsolete and there are new redevelopment opportunities? Using a case study, examine what has to be done to deconstruct the complex set of property rights and interests and create new redevelopment opportunities.
