As 2016 moves to a close, I’m reminded of our Annual Conference and Business Meeting in Galveston six months ago, where I stated that my number one goal as president was to defend the current title insurance regulatory system because it protects the Texas consumer. That is still my number one goal! TLTA had great success this fall addressing the issue with TAB, but the work continues with TPPF.
I am honored to be your new president for 2016-2017. Thank you to everyone who came out to the Annual Conference and Business Meeting in June; it was great meeting more fellow TLTA members and seeing longtime friends and colleagues. I look forward to meeting more of you in the coming months.
As you know, 2016 has started off with quite a bang. The Texas Association of Business and Texas Public Policy Foundation attack against the Texas title insurance industry has been unprecedented, but not unexpected: TLTA has dealt with similar threats in the past, so we were prepared to mobilize from the very start.
