The deadline for submissions was Friday, November 20th, 2015.
Who Reviews the Proposals
Educational content is developed using the proposals in combination with guidance from leadership and volunteers. All proposals are reviewed by ALTA leadership and staff with the intention of forming a well rounded educational program.
Hints for Successful Proposals
Proposals are expected to be company and product neutral, educational in focus, and well-formed. Sales pitches and promotions for companies or products will be rejected.
At the Business Strategies Conference, we are looking for hands-on, tactical sessions for day-to-day operations staff.
We would like for sessions to be as interactive as possible.
Complete contact information should be provided for ALL proposed presenters and panelists.
Presentations are limited to a maximum of four speakers (including a moderator), and no speaker is permitted to be part of more than two accepted proposals.
Carefully consider the mix of speakers and panelists. If you are a vendor, you may want to team up with a customer to propose a case study.
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. These types of panel presentations are very popular and have proven to be successful.
Content areas and tracks change slightly from year to year. 2016 is set to be another year of change and growth for the land title industry. Several of ALTA's strategic priorities for next year are outlined below and those listed will serve as the five tracks for the Business Strategies Conference:
Know Before You Owe (TRID)
Consumer Experience (Homebuyer Outreach Program)
ALTA will focus on these themes throughout 2016, and the topics should help you frame your proposals.
Speakers (including presenters, co-presenters, moderators, and panelists) are eligible for the following benefits:
