ALTA Membership Rises for Fourth Consecutive Year
May 02, 2013

The American Land Title Association (ALTA) has announced that, for the fourth consecutive year, it has achieved all-time record membership. To date, ALTA has 4,271 member companies, which surpasses last year’s membership record by more than 200 companies. ALTA expects membership to balloon further throughout the remainder of 2013. “Each day the voice of our industry gets stronger because of the new members we gain,” said Frank Pellegrini, ALTA’s president. “By continually growing, the association can better serve an industry that protects the ‘American dream’ for millions of consumers each year.” ALTA’s diverse membership includes title insurance companies, title agents, abstracters, and real estate attorneys; the majority of these members are small business owners that rely on the variety of services and benefits that ALTA provides. “We are very excited that we have more than 875 new member companies this year,” said Michelle Korsmo, ALTA’s CEO. “In addition to recruiting large numbers of new member companies, we continue to increase the number of our existing members who renew their membership annually. We are confident 2013 will continue to broaden the reach of our association within the land title insurance industry.”
