Nancy Gusman and Steve Buckman, both active ALTA and Maryland Land Title Association members, joined Ben Lincoln, ALTA’s director of government affairs, during the meeting.

The group discussed the importance of extending the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act as well as the prospects of Congress considering GSE reform.

“These types of meetings in a representative’s home state and or district are great ways to build relationships with members of Congress,” said Michelle Korsmo, ALTA’s chief executive officer.
