SoftPro is the nation's leading provider of Real Estate Closing and Title Insurance software

North American Title Insurance Company is a seasoned title insurance underwriter that has been helping customers achieve the American dream of homeownership for more than 50 years. In the past several years, we have become known as the “underwriter next door,� because our associates are always easy to reach and our processes are, at all times, quick and straightforward. Our agency application process is fast and transparent for qualified agents. NATIC offers a one-hour underwriting response guarantee that is unparallelled in our industry. In addition, we value our agents based on their title industry knowledge and experience, not just on profits alone.

Guidelines for Successful Proposals

Filling out the Form:
  • Session name and description should be proposed using correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
  • Complete contact information should be provided for all proposed presenters and panelists. Sessions with specific speakers (instead of TBD) will be given more consideration.
  • Proposals should include clearly defined learning objectives.
  • Presentations are limited to a maximum of four speakers.

Session Content:

  • Proposals are expected to be company and product neutral, educational in focus, and well-formed.
  • If any part of the content of your proposal is vendor or company specific, you should consider forming a panel with presenters from competitor companies or a case study with customers. These types of panel presentations are very popular and have proven to be successful.
  • Sales pitches for products or services disguised as proposals will be eliminated.

Session Details:

  • Presentations are scheduled on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the convention week. Please submit a proposal only if you are available to present on all of these days.

  • Generally, you can expect 50 - 100 attendees.
