Texas Chapter Winter Meeting
Thursday, February 9th
10:30 AM – Noon
Austin, Texas
The Hyatt in Austin

Guest Speaker: Charles Porter
Agent Duties Under the New 2023 Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rules

Dr. Porter’s talk is designed to give the real estate licensee an overview of duties and disclosures in all types of transactions, especially farm and ranch properties, under the just-released rules stemming from the EPA interpretation of what constitutes the waters of the United States. This recent redrafting of the rules very likely expands the jurisdiction of the EPA and the US Army Corps of Engineers over all types of land and water across the United States.

Albert N. Allen, ALC

I have appraised, brokered, bought and sold rural property all of my adult life. In order to be one of the best at my profession, I joined the Realtors Land Institute (RLI). Membership in the RLI provided me with education, a professional designation and networking opportunities with some of the best land brokers in Texas. The Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation is awarded by the RLI after a rigorous program of education, examinations and experience. Land Brokers who have earned the ALC represent the top tier of the rural land profession.
