Partner Lisa Clare Kombrink recently attended Rally 2017, the National Land Conservation conference in Denver, Colorado. Serving as the premier training and networking conference for professionals in the land conservation field, Rally ’17 offered more than 130 educational sessions focused on land conservation topics, as well as special networking events. Lisa joined attorneys and specialists from all over the United States for the series Doing Deals and Ensuring Permanence, covering topics such as documenting changes in conservation easements, latest and greatest federal tax issues in easement donations, and surviving court battles over preserved land.
At the plenary session, Lisa heard guest speaker Astronaut Pam Melroy describe her adventures on three space shuttle missions and viewed Commander Melroy’s photographs taken high above the earth, which captured her love of the planet.
Lisa also met with many attorneys engaged in the business of land conservation, including preparing conservation easements, managing enforcement issues, and defending owners and holders of easements when disputes arise.
