A lot has changed in our industry, but our strong commitment to our members remains the same. Since its formation in 1974, Virginia Land Title Association has worked to protect the land title industry in Virginia. In essence, our mission remains the same: to advance the efficient and secure transfer of ownership of real property by proactively serving its members, the consumer, and affiliated associations.
Don’t RISK not being in the LOOP! Become a member and learn about the path to licensure for both Title Settlement Agents and Title Examiners. Meanwhile, get ahead of the competition and become certified - Title Settlement Agent Certification (VCTSA) and/or Title Examination Certification (VCTE).
VLTA 2014 Annual Convention
Our 2014 Annual Convention was an amazing success. With more attendees than we've seen in a decade, and high spirits that were simply contagious, the 2014 Annual Convention was an event to remember. Check out our Convention photos and see for yourself what an incredible time we had!
The 2014 Volunteer of the Year Award was awarded to Tracy Milanese of Access National Bank. Tracy's time and service to the Association have made an enormous impact on our Association's effectiveness, and we're so proud to have brought her on board. The 2014 Ronald Donn Scholarship was awarded to Susan Johnson of BridgeTrust Title, Virginia Beach. Susan's application was exemplary and we hope she enjoyed Convention this year.
Thank you to all of our sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees for making this year's Convention unforgettable.
