Our in-person conference has been canceled. Here is a message from Conference Co-Chairs, Lou Weller and Mary Foster:
Dear Past Attendees and Others Interested in 1031 Issues:
As many know, we were scheduled to present the 25th annual Jeremiah Long National Conference at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego at the end of October. Throughout the past several months we have worked hard to monitor the COVID shutdown situation in California, directly and with the guidance of the hotel, in order to assess our ability to effectively present a conference this year that was up to par with our expectations and history. Unfortunately, after much hand-wringing and evaluation, we have determined that it is simply not feasible to move forward with this year’s edition of the Conference. There are at present simply too many unknowns relating to associated health issues for attendees, faculty and staff, the hotel’s ability to host us and peoples’ willingness to travel. In the end, we had no choice but to take the course to cancel the live Conference, as has every professional education group with which we’re familiar.
Many of you have asked about a virtual conference. We looked at this and concluded that a Zoom or similar format simply couldn’t be effectively applied to the interactive type of panel/audience presentations that we view as a core aspect of the Long Conference. While we will not be shifting to a virtual format, we are looking to prepare an audio presentation on the final Regulations defining real property for Section 1031 (and maybe some other hot topics) for you to access online. We hope to offer you something along these lines via audio format within the next couple of months.
While we’ve had to suspend the clock on our gala 25th Annual presentation this year, we are looking ahead to the fall of 2021 and anticipating a fantastic 25th anniversary event at that time!
We want you to know that we truly value your loyalty to the Long Conference and count on your willingness to participate and attend next year.
Take care and be well,
Mary Foster and Lou Weller
