The State Bar of Michigan Real Property Law Section (RPLS) will host its 2013 summer conference, "Returning to our Roots—Conventional Real Estate Practice Fundamentals for 2013," from July 10-13 at Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa in Thompsonville, Michigan.
Programs and workshops will cover such topics as "Lean, Mean, Seen & Green—Solving the Top Issues in Buying, Financing, Leasing, and Renovating Commercial Real Estate," "Threading the Needle: Negotiating and Drafting Insurance Provisions in Leases, Mortgage Documents, and Other Real Estate Contracts," "Job 1: Get Your Client's Shovel in the Ground: Navigating Your Way Through the Municipal Approval Process," "Finishing the Jigsaw Puzzle—Creative Development of Infill & Difficult Parcels" and "Environmental Essentials for the Real Estate Attorney." A special presentation will be given by Ken Segall, author of Insanely Simple: The Obsession that Drives Apple's Success. Segall is an advertising executive who worked closely with Steve Jobs for over 12 years spanning NeXT and Apple. He started the i-frenzy by naming the iMac and led the team that created Apple's famous "Think Different" campaign.
