NYSLTA is the only statewide organization that represents all aspects of the land title insurance profession. Our by-laws, organizational structure and history are available online or by request. Our Executive Committee meetings are open to all members.
Our core functions are to be a resource for our member companies and to provide legislative and governmental advocacy, professional education and actionable business information. We are authorized by the NY Department of Financial Services to issue professional continuing education credits and approved by the Continuing Legal Education Board to provide credit-bearing CLE programs.
Our organizational meetings and communication vehicles provide a central platform for industry issues to be discussed and disseminated. We sometimes provide members with discounts from vendors of business services, but do not endorse or recommend any particular business or vendor.
NYSLTA is an independent membership organization. We are not a subset or chapter of the American Land Title Association, although we communicate frequently with ALTA and our organizations are mutually supportive.
NYSLTA does not provide legal or business advice to our members. We do not set rates or fees and we do not dictate business practices for our members.
