  • To provide information and education to consumers; to those who regulate, supervise, or enact legislation affecting the land title industry; to its members; and to affiliated state, district, territorial, provincial, regional, and international associations.
  • To maintain liaison with users of the products and services provided by its members and with government.
  • To maintain professional standards and ethics.
  • To provide assistance to affiliated associations.
