January/February 1998 - Volume 77, Number 1

Direct insight into the leading 1988 issues and priorities of Congress, federal agencies and the secondary mortgage market awaits ALTA® members during the Association Mid-Year Convention/Leadership Conference March 16-18 at Washington's Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Besides updating on major issues including RESPA-Truth-in-Lending reform, packaging loan services and tax initiatives, title professionals in attendance will receive an opportunity to discuss leading industry concerns with their own elected Senators and Representatives.

Providing an appropriate ambiance will be the Ice Breaker/Congressional Reception Tuesday evening, March 17, which will be held at a famous landmark--Washington's restored Beaux Arts Union Station, site of several Presidential Inaugural Balls over the years since its construction in 1908.

Among those scheduled for featured program appearances:

  • House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-TX), a fiscal conservative who is responsible for completion of the Republican legislative agenda, who will address the Tuesday ALTA®/Title Industry Political Action Committee luncheon
  • Fannie Mae Vice Chairman Jamie Gorelick, responsible for areas of business and developments affecting the title industry, who is expected to comment on changes in the real estate industry
  • Michael Dunn, former House legislative assistant to Representatives David Pryor (D-AR) and Congressman G. V. (Sonny) Montgomery (D-MS), who now heads his own public affairs consulting firm; he will offer thoughts on improving the political effectiveness of an association
  • Ted Jones, vice president and chief economist, Stewart Title Guaranty Company, who will serve as moderator for a panel of real estate economics professionals focusing on the long and short range outlook, as well as the likely future structure of the entire industry
  • The Capital Gang of CNN Network prominence (nationally syndicated columnists Robert Novak and Mark Shields, along with National Review's Kate O'Bierne) will engage in a lively debate on major political issues

Perspectives on title industry concerns from Capitol Hill and the Federal Reserve also will be highlighted. For an overview of the conference, please the the calendar on the following page. Questions may be directed to the Association at 800-787-ALTA® or e-mail
