The ALTA® Research Committee - Abstracter/Agent Subcommittee Sets Questions for 2007 Survey

August 23, 2007

The ALTA Research Committee Abstracter/Agent Subcommittee met this week in Omaha, Nebraska. And thanks to the efforts of long time Committee member Mardy McCullough, the Mayor of Omaha, Mike Fahey (who was in the title business for more than 18 years) was able to join the group for a dinner and discussion of important issues currently facing the title industry.

The Committee was successful in developing questions for the 2007 ALTA Abstracter/Agent Operations Survey at this meeting. The questionnaire, which should go out to members in September 2007 and be completed in early 2008, gives detailed statistical data on types of business activities, average median revenues, operating expenses, staffing and personnel, and other operating statistics by company size and by geographic region.

If you’d like to be part of this important committee please contact Mark Hernick.
