Dear TLTA members,

Now that the 85th Session of the Texas Legislature is over and TLTA has emerged victorious against the forces that wanted to change our safe and stable industry, I want to send a special thanks to all of our members who worked so hard to make sure that legislation threatening our work and our customers didn't pass. We owe you quite a few thank-yous! Whether you testified against HB 4239, made a PAC contribution, met with your legislator, contacted your legislator during session, attended Day at the Capitol, served on our Legislative Committee or simply spread the truth about the title insurance industry, TLTA thanks you for your dedication and support. In addition, our tireless legislative team deserves a special thanks for their incredible work over not just the last few months, but the year and a half spent preparing for this session!

The Annual Conference and Business Meeting is quickly approaching, and I hope to see all of you in New Orleans this June 12-14. It has been an honor to serve as your president over this last year, and I'm very proud of all we were able to accomplish together.

Again, thank you for all of your service to your association and your industry. And if you have suggestions for us or just comments you'd like to share, we'd love to hear them.

James H. Dudley, IV
