Floodplain Regulation:
Development in Oregon & Washington Public Ports
Weekly Four Part Series: February 22, March 1, March 8, and March 15
Live Webcast from Portland by The Seminar Group

Development in shoreline areas over the past decade have been complicated by a variety of changing legal and environmental conditions. This conference will look at how shoreline development at public and private ports in Washington and Oregon is being impacted by changes in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), as well as state and local regulations. In addition, we will examine how climate change—and in particular resiliency and adaptation– is impacting operations, planning and development at public and private ports.

Hear about the latest developments in the laws and regulations controlling development at ports and in shoreline areas, including changes to the way that FEMA and other federal agencies are mapping floodplain areas, the evolving integration of the Endangered Species Act into the National Flood Insurance Program, climate change and resiliency and adaptation planning, and how Oregon and Washington are integrating these changes into their own local regulatory programs.

Drafting Sales Agreements: UCC Issues and More
Tuesday, March 9, 2021/10:00 AM
Audio Webinar

The sale of goods is one of the most common forms of commercial transaction. The sales contracts governing these transactions can be quite complex, and they must all comply with Uniform Commercial Code Article 2. The UCC governs contract formation and express and implied warranties, and it outlines forms of breach of contract and types of remedies. Compliance with the code enhances enforceability of the contract and expedites remedies upon breach. However, when its many requirements are overlooked, contracts for sales of goods may be invalid and the underlying transaction void. This program provides you with a practical guide to drafting and reviewing contracts for the sale of goods under UCC Article 2.

  • “Battle of forms,” methods of acceptance or rejection, and electronic contracting
  • Delivery, acceptance, or rejection of goods by buyer
  • Breaches for failure to deliver, nonconforming product, repudiation, failure to pay
  • Types and measure of damages for breach of contract by seller or buyer
  • Express and implied warranties—fitness for purpose, merchantability, title infringement
  • Disclaimer of warranties and other techniques to limit scope of liability
