Register for ALTA’s 2013 Annual Convention and
Learn All About Best Practices

Lenders have been contending with mounds of regulatory changes due to the Dodd-Frank Act, but they are starting to focus on ways to reduce risk at the settlement table.

This means they will soon be knocking on your door to learn the policies and procedures you follow to reduce risk, protect funds associated with the transaction and ensure non-public personal information is safeguarded.

You can stay ahead of the curve by attending ALTA’s 2013 Annual Convention at the Breakers in Palm Beach, Fla. ALTA has scheduled two full tracks – nine sessions in all – dedicated to educating attendees about Best Practices. These are dynamic and information-filled sessions aimed at helping to keep lender business flowing your way.

We are still finalizing speakers and content, but some confirmed sessions include:

  • Escrow from Soup to Nuts: From set up to shut down, this session will cover everything you need to know, including proper naming of the account, reconciliation, verifying the existence of fraud accounts, proper crime insurance and how to escheat funds. Come to this session to make sure your accounts satisfy the ALTA Best Practices.
  • Gaining a Competitive Advantage by Implementing a Clean Desk Policy: Speakers will provide information that will give you the ability to create a customized Clean Desk Policy specific to your organization.
  • Weaving the Threads of Title E&O: This session will discuss how title professionals can utilize current insurance market products to mitigate their financial responsibility risks. Attendees will learn about title agent E&O, cyber liability/data breach and escrow security bonds, and how to most effectively use these products within their agency.
  • Trials and Tribulations in Enhancing Consumer Care: Panelists who have implemented Best Practices will share successes in modifying their processes and provide attendees solid take-aways that can be implemented in their operations.
