At Fortune Title, we love our trade associations, plain and simple. The American Land Title Association (ALTA), the New Jersey Land Title Association (NJLTA), and the Pennsylvania Land Title Association (PLTA), are not only resources for extensive industry information and education, they are also extended families of our small agency. We see tremendous value in getting involved in the title industry beyond our four walls, so that we can truly best serve the consumer and all other professionals that work in real estate. As you may have read, Fortune Title CEO Nicole Plath attends every convention for these organizations, and has really made a name for herself and for our agency in the industry. Nicole serves on the Best Practices Executive Committee, the Homebuyers Outreach Program Committee for ALTA, and was recently nominated and voted in for a three-year term on the Agency and Abstractors Executive Committee for ALTA. This is an incredible honor, bestowed on a handful of agents throughout the nation. She has served on expert panels imparting her wisdom to the masses on ALTA Best Practices, Internal Best Practices Assessment, The TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule (aka TRID), Transitioning to a Paperless Office, Financial Statements, and Compliance as a Culture. Nicole also serves as Secretary for the NJLTA Agency Section, is the Editor in Chief of The Advocate, NJLTA’s quarterly trade publication, and serves on the Finance and Strategy Committee for the PLTA. Taking any opportunity for education, in addition to Nicole, Fortune Title President Nick Timpanaro, and Business Development Manager Jon Timpanaro also attend industry conventions when their schedules permit, and Jon has been involved in the Technology Committee. We can’t stress enough the benefits of the relationships that we’ve built with our trade associations, and feel lucky for the unequivocal support that they have given us.
