Michigan Land Title Association Enhances Participation with Habitat for Humanity
November 4, 2010
The Michigan Land Title Association is proud to announce the commencement of its alliance with Habitat for Humanity Michigan. While many MLTA members have been long time supporters of their local Habitat affiliate, the MLTA recognized the opportunity to increase and enhance MLTA member participation.
The goal of this program is to increase Habitat for Humanity volunteerism, among MLTA’s membership base, by presenting MLTA members with multiple and varied volunteer service options, including: fundraising drives, material donations, habitat home build participation; and affiliate board member opportunities. To enhance the members’ volunteer experience, MLTA Habitat for Humanity committee members’ serve as liaisons between the member participant and their local Habitat affiliate. Committee member duties include: soliciting member participation; facilitating member – affiliate introductions; monitoring member participation, to ensure member expectations are met; and promoting MLTA member participation in the member’s community and throughout the MLTA membership base.
Habitat for Humanity of Michigan’s long standing commitment to helping its neighbors in need fueled the MLTA’s desire to take action. Doug McFarlane, MLTA past president, channeled this desire into a working plan of action.
MLTA’s current president, Tim McDonnell, is committed to carrying out this plan, by utilizing the association’s influence and resources, to make certain that all parties, most especially, Habitat for Humanity affiliates and Habitat homeowners, benefit from our involvement.
