NLC20 | San Antonio, TX | March 29 – April 1 | EVENT CANCELLED

With heavy hearts, RLI leadership and staff have made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 National Land Conference scheduled to begin Sunday, March 29 in San Antonio, TX.

While we did everything we could to continue moving forward with the event as planned, the progression of the situation surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak which led to the President’s declaration of a national emergency on Friday and the CDC recommendation of no gatherings larger than 50 people have made it difficult to proceed with the event.

We realize that many are very disappointed – among them, RLI Leadership, the 2020 National Land Conference Planning Committee, our expert speakers, our dedicated event sponsors, and our hardworking staff who have all been working for the past year to bring you the best National Land Conference yet. However, we put the safety of our attendees, staff, and the public above all else, and no longer feel moving forward with this event would be in their best interests.

NLC20 Refund Policy and Process

We will be issuing full refunds for all registrations. If you have already cancelled, we will also refund any cancellation fee you have already paid. We hope you will be patient as we process the nearly 300 attendee registrations from what was to be the second largest National Land Conference in our history.

Please wait for RLI staff to be in touch with you, we appreciate your patience.

Hotel Room Cancellation Instructions

In the meantime, please take steps to cancel your hotel reservations as soon as possible as there is a 24-hour cancellation policy at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio.

The Grand Hyatt San Antonio has asked us to share this statement:

To cancel your hotel accommodations at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, you may go to Hyatt.com and cancel your reservation online. Should you have additional questions regarding your reservation, please email sanantonio.grand@hyatt.com. Cancellation of any guaranteed room reservation must be received by the hotel at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled arrival to recover your deposit and avoid any additional charges or penalties assessed by the hotel for guest no-show.

Save The Date! Attend The Virtual NLC20

Given the size of this event, we book our conferences one to two years in advance, so unfortunately we do not have the luxury of rescheduling. However, please know that at this time RLI staff is working hard to turn as much of this event as possible into a virtual conference to take place on Monday, March 30. If you are interested in still gaining the same high level of expertise from our speakers as you would at our live event, we kindly ask that you save the date on your calendar and plan to tune-in for the live webinar-format sessions. At this time, we are still working out the details but will be in touch with more information soon.

Additionally, we are excited to announce that we will still be opening online bidding on all items for our Cowboy Auction in a silent auction format later this week. Please help us continue to support the Land Education Foundation (LEF) by being as generous as you would have in person at the live event. Monetary donations can also be made on the auction website and are greatly appreciated. Please keep an eye out in your email for more information to come soon.

It is the invaluable support and enthusiasm of our members that has grown our annual National Land Conference and we truly appreciate your understanding about having to make this extremely difficult decision to cancel NLC20 in San Antonio. We encourage all of our members to continue to follow CDC advice as well as advice from your local department of public health to keep yourself healthy and prevent the spread of the virus so things can return to normal as soon as possible and future events are not disrupted.

Finally, please mark your calendars for our 2021 National Land Conference (NLC21) in Louisville, KY, from February 21-24. We look forward to seeing you there, if not sooner.

If you have any questions, we are happy to help, we just ask that you please be patient with our small staff as this announcement is sure to generate a lot of inquiries. We will be doing our absolute best to get back to each of you as quickly as possible. To help us manage any influx of calls/emails regarding this announcement, and to help us respond as quickly as possible, please make all inquiries to rli@realtors.org or 800-441-5263.
