For the majority of title professionals, components of ALTA’s Best Practices are not new business processes. The policies and procedures have been in place for some time. Changes in the marketplace, however, have forced lenders to require concrete evidence that guidelines are being followed to reduce settlement risk. It is crucial members take action now to implement the Best Practices and prove to lenders compliance. Don’t miss this informative session as the speakers provide an overview of the Best Practices and discuss what ALTA is doing now to provide resources and aid members in implementation.
There is one constant in life (and business) . . . change. Yet, change is not new. What is new is the incredible speed of change. Industries, companies and careers have gone from “distinction” to “extinction” because of their inability to adapt, adjust and master change. This session will offer a high-content, high-energy approach to embracing, as well as capitalizing, on change in business building. This will be a timely discussion to help title professionals adjust to evolving lender requirements as well as new closing disclosures coming down the pike. Remember, change is inevitable. Growth is optional.
