The deadline to request IAAO apply for continuing legal education (CLE) credits for the 41st Annual Legal Seminar, Dec. 3-4, 2020 in Austin, Texas, is Oct. 2 and if you are planning on attending I urge you to register this week.
The seminar will take place at the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown and the IAAO Meetings Department has been working with the hotel to offer the seminar responsibly.
The hotel is implementing new protocols to create a safe meeting environment, including elevated cleaning standards throughout the hotel and meeting space. Full details are available online.  The room rate is $211 per night, plus various taxes and to reserve a room, please see the registration and hotel page.
Topics for the seminar include recent developments in real property taxation, cost of equity relevance to valuation of a public utility, valuation of renewable energy facilities, the impact of Covid-19 on hotel and restaurant values, equal protection challenges in property tax cases, public officials dealing with sovereign citizens, and ethics for lawyers.

Attendees can register online or submit a paper form. Fees are $500 for IAAO members and $700 for nonmembers until Nov. 1. After that date, fees increase to $550 for members and $750 for nonmembers.
Scholarships available
IAAO offers a Scholarship Fund to promote ad valorem appraisal education and the fund is available to all IAAO members who need financial assistance (up to $1,250) to attend the Legal Seminar.  An application is online or contact Ashley Lathrop with questions at

Recertification Credit & CLE Hours
IAAO professional designees can earn up to 13.5 recertification credit hours for attending the seminar. Lawyers will receive a uniform certificate of attendance on the second day of the seminar for filing with their state.
IAAO will seek CLE credit approval for states that were requested by Oct. 2. IAAO cannot guarantee CLE approval from states requested after Oct. 2 and IAAO cannot guarantee that states will approve the seminar for CLE accreditation.
Again, if you plan on attending and need CLE credits, please register this week. I hope to see you in Austin.
