In addition to covering commercial real estate, the conference includes the Texas Real Estate Commission's two legal update courses. This means you'll not only earn ten continuing education (CE) hours of elective credit for the commercial course but also a combined eight hours for the two legal updates. This year, you'll also receive 12.75 CLE hours (zero ethics hours) from the State Bar of Texas.
The list of CRE topics that will be covered is exhaustive: investment climate, future of office space, environmental update, energy, multifamily, retail, medical, and overall Texas economic conditions.
Few CRE conferences boast a more knowledgeable and qualified speaker lineup. This year's agenda includes David Boyd of Boyd Commercial; Robert Eury, president of Central Houston Inc.; Center Chief Economist Dr. Jim Gaines; Bill Gilmer, director of the Institute for Regional Forecasting at the University of Houston's Bauer College of Business; Detlef Hallermann, director of the Reliant Energy Trade Center at Texas A&M University; Rudy Hubbard with JLL's Capital Markets Group; real estate attorney Charles Jacobus; Matt Kafka with HFF; Ed Wulfe, CEO of Wulfe & Co.; Kenneth Katz with Baker Katz; and RD Tanner, real estate director for the Port of Houston Authority.
The conference is Oct. 4 and 5 at Houston's Norris Conference Center. Cost is $275.
