N.J., Pa. State Title Associations to Hold Second Joint Convention

February 11, 2010

New Jersey and Pennsylvania title professionals will converge for their annual convention this June 10-13 at the Sagamore Resort in Bolton’s Landing, N.Y. The theme of the 2010 Convention is “SagaMORE – more networking, more education, more value”, and organizers are intent on backing up the claim in the second joint convention of the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Land Title Associations. NJLTA and PLTA expect that about 300 agents, underwriters, affiliates and their guests will travel to the Sagamore for the 2010 Convention, looking to expand their business and social networks in a relaxed setting. Beyond the opportunity for networking, members of the title associations will be attracted by the early-bird registration fee of $395 for the full convention program.

“We are able to deliver a great value in this convention through collaboration with the Pennsylvania Land Title Association,” said NJLTA President Richard Eland. “Our first joint convention last year showed that together, we can enjoy all the events our convention has traditionally included, add new features and programs, and get to know many new colleagues and contacts from across the Delaware River.”

“Our educational program will concentrate on helping our members achieve success in difficult conditions by improving their professional and business skills,” said NJLTA Second VP and Convention Chair Bill DeAscentiis. “The New Jersey and Pennsylvania Land Title Institutes are developing fresh and timely programs that will offer at least 6 Continuing Education credits for both title insurance agents and attorneys, whether they are based in Pennsylvania or New Jersey.”

The 2010 joint convention takes place in a truly beautiful setting, at the classic Sagamore resort on Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains. The convention opens on June 10 with an icebreaker reception on the lake, and continues through the final business session on June 13. The long weekend will include the traditional elements of New Jersey’s and Pennsylvania’s annual conventions – educational programs, cocktail reception, awards banquet, golf tournament and New Jersey’s closing breakfast and slide show.

The Sagamore combines a gilded age aura with 21st century amenities. A massive recent renovation refurbished virtually all hotel rooms, refreshed landscaping and upgraded the grounds, and added a gorgeous pool and other recreation and dining options. The Sagamore is a complete resort, where water sports, fishing, golf, and other outdoor activities provide endless opportunities for recreation for members and their families during the Convention. Various types of rooms and suites are available at rates beginning at $245 per night.
