Washington, DC, May 6, 2016 — The American Land Title Association (ALTA) announced that Western Technologies Group (WTG) has been named an ALTA Elite Provider.

ALTA’s Elite Provider Program is comprised of premier service providers committed to offering comprehensive benefits to the title insurance and settlement services industry. Elite Providers promote the highest industry standards and provide effective solutions for ALTA members’ critical needs.
