ALTA® Educates Hill Staffers

September 18, 2007

President Greg Kosin led a panel of ALTA members in a discussion on the Hill this morning to educate Hill staffers about title insurance, the closing process and the new Title Industry Consumer Initiative. Approximately 30 Hill staffers attended.

In addition, ALTA held a media teleconference to announce the Initiative to the media. ALTA members learned about the Initiative in last week’s News You Can Use.

The Title Industry Consumer Initiative details the association’s five-pronged strategy for improving industry oversight and educating and protecting consumers. You can find out more about the Initiative on ALTA’s Web site under the "About ALTA" section. Look for an e-mail in the next week from President Kosin on how you can get involved.
