ALTA Members Give Title 101 Presentation at PRIA Annual Conference

August 30, 2012

The PRIA Annual Conference is in full swing in Memphis, Tenn., at The Peabody Hotel. ALTA Immediate Past President Anne Anastasi moderated the Title 101 Presentation for the 30 time, working with a group of land title professionals from Tennessee. Participating (and pictured from left to right) were: Andy Maloney, president of Nashville Title; Matt McDonald, president of Realty Title; Anastasi, president of Genesis Abstract; Shawna Hulse, general manager of Realty Title; and Mary Allisandratos, underwriting counsel at First American Title Insurance Co.

The Title 101 presentation explains the unique process used to issue title insurance policies and addresses the search and exam, clearance and curative, closing and claims.

The PRIA audience of land records professionals, including a number of county recorders and clerks, were fascinated by stories of the hard work of land title professionals and the amazing tales of fraud prevention and claims management.
