Letter from the Section Chair

I’m pleased and excited to announce the Section’s Virtual 34th Annual RPTE National CLE Conference April 26-29, 2022. This year we will also provide an in-person option in Dallas to allow registrants the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues.

Our planning committee has developed an outstanding program focusing on the most trending areas of real property, trust, and estate law. Our faculty includes many of the leading practitioners in these areas who will update us on cutting-edge developments.

The Conference will allow registrants the opportunity to participate remotely both in real-time and later, on-demand. Please note, MCLE credit will only be available to those who watch programs in real-time.

For those who will be attending in-person, registrants will have the ability to watch all of the virtual programs together at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Las Colinas. This viewing option provides registrants the opportunity to enjoy the camaraderie and social networking.

I very much hope that you will choose to join us at the Virtual 34th Annual RPTE National CLE Conference.

Keynote Speaker

Charles P. Rettig is the 49th U.S. Commissioner of Internal Revenue. As Commissioner, Mr. Rettig presides over the nation’s tax system, which collects more than $3.5 trillion in tax revenue each year representing about 96% of the total gross receipts of the United States. In this regard, the continued success of our country depends upon a successful IRS since this revenue funds most government operations and public services. Mr. Rettig manages an agency of about 80,000 employees and a budget of more than $11 billion.
