It looks a little like alphabet soup, but the acronyms MLTA, VLTA, and ALTA are very important to those of us who work at Foote Title Group. These are the three land title associations of which we are a member: the Maryland Land Title Association, the Virginia Land Title Association, and the American Land Title Association.
All three share a commitment to continuing education, promoting professionalism and ethical behavior, and advocating for their members at the state or federal level. Title agents are required to complete continuing education throughout their careers to maintain their licenses, and these organizations provide those courses. Taking the associations’ courses allow agents to remain abreast of changes within the title industry and in state and local laws.
The land title associations also host conventions and events that allow members to network.
