Help Protect Your Industry: Take the Congressional Liaisons Survey

February 20, 2018

By John Voso Jr.

About six years ago, I made a commitment to be an advocate for the title industry. I would like to challenge you to do the same.

You can get started today by taking our Congressional Liaisons survey at Doing so will help inform ALTA if you know an elected official.

You’re an asset to ALTA’s advocacy team by sharing information about any relationships you have with elected officials. We can’t utilize what we don’t know. So far, we have identified 503 relationships that title professionals have with elected officials. Additionally, many more have stepped forward, starting the process to build these key relationships that help us educate legislators about our industry.

The Congressional Liaisons program is critical to legislative efforts. In fact, Congressional Liaisons played a major role in the recent fight regarding gains on the sale of a primary residence during the tax reform debate.

Advocacy efforts strengthen our industry and benefit us all. The concept is straightforward; legislators need information, and you are the experts. These relationships are a springboard for addressing issues early and sharing the professionalism of the title industry.

Participation so far is impressive, but we are just hitting our stride. Will you be part of the movement and volunteer your time to advocate for the title industry?

I hope you’ll join me advocating for and protecting our industry. Start today by taking our survey at
