VLTA is governed by a ten to twelve (10-12) member board of directors with representation of both agencies and insurers from all regions of Virginia. Our by-laws have established a mandatory balance of governance between agency members and insurer members. The presidency of the Association rotates between agency and underwriter members each year. The board is charged with the management of the Association. The board meets eight times annually. The VLTA is an IRS 501[c] not for profit corporation.
The VLTA has six standing committees that allow membership involvement in matters of individual interest. These committees are: Legislative, Public Relations, Education, Membership, Events and the Examiner (publications).
VLTA has two sections, the agents section, and the underwriters. The Sections focus on matters that are critical to their side of the title insurance business. In some instances differences in viewpoint are raised in joint section meetings where communication and consensus building become the paramount objective.
The primary purpose of the Association involves the education of the membership. The Association develops and sponsors educational seminars every year. Most seminars qualify for both Continuing Insurance Education and Continuing Legal Education. Title professionals throughout the State of Virginia and its surrounding states have the opportunity to continue their training and education in the title industry through VLTA’s Annual Conventions and Seminars. Professional Development Seminars afford further growth and educational opportunities to land title professionals.
