ALTA's 2012 Federal Conference and Lobby Day provides the best opportunity for our industry to establish itself as a knowledgeable resource and thought leader on property rights, title insurance and real estate settlements. The conference also gives you a chance to hear from regulators and industry leaders on topics impacting the industry.
- GSE Reform: Future of Housing Finance: Panelists will discuss legislative proposals to reform Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the housing finance system. Find out what proposals are on the table and how they could ultimately impact your business. Speakers: Ron Hayne, Independent Community Bankers of America; Jim Johnson, American Securitization Forum; Jamie Gregory, National Association of Realtors; and moderator Matt Tully, legislative director for Rep. David Schweikert.
- CFPB Forms Panel: Mortgage Disclosures: A New HUD-1 is Coming . . . Will You Be Ready?: Panelists will discuss the status of CFPB’s efforts to create new combined mortgage disclosure forms that will replace the current TIL, GFE and HUD-1 Settlement Statement, and what attendees might expect to see from the disclosure forms when the Bureau releases its regulations in July. Speakers: Ben Olson, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; Scott Olson, former staff to Rep. Barney Frank; Ken Markison, Mortgage Bankers Association; and moderator Justin Ailes, ALTA.
- Congressional Briefing: In two separate sessions, Rob Jesmer of the National Republican Senatorial Committee and Guy Cecil of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will give a briefing on the 2012 Senate races. You can get a preview of their perspective by clicking here.

ALTA has 134 confirmed meetings with Congressional offices on the Hill. Of these meetings, 20 are with members of the House Financial Services Committee and Senate Banking Committee. Legislators respond to specific examples from people they represent and your front-line stories will help influence change. Nervous about meeting a member of Congress? Don’t worry. ALTA provides tools to help ensure a successful meeting and will hold a policy briefing at the conference.
