NLTA: Serving the Title Industry Since 1903
The Nebraska Land Title Association was formed in 1903 and incorporated in 1966. The Association is guided by an elected Board of Directors and Officers. A committee structure allows Members to make a difference by volunteering their skills and talents. Committees include: Bylaws, Convention, Education, Legislature, Membership, Nominating, Title Person of the Year (TPOY) & Scholarship Awards Committee, Title Insurance Committee, Title Standards, Manual and Forms Committee, Past Presidents Council, and Technology Committee.
Educate and advocate for the land title professional, and foster integrity of its members.
The Association utilizes an Education
Committee to plan, organize, promote and be responsible for the execution
of a constantly improving program of continuing education. Current annual programming includes a spring conference (one day) and fall convention with annual education (two days). An Ethics session is part of each program. Nebraska licensed title insurance agents and abstracters can earn all the mandatory continuing education hours by attending one of these programs annually. NLTA programs are also now submitted to the Nebraska Bar Association for approval as Continuing Legal Education (CLE) for Nebraska attorneys.
NLTA also offers an ongoing Pre-Licensing self-study program that meets the statutory requirement for prelicensing hours. (The materials can be ordered through our Online Store.)
The purpose of NLTA's Legislative
Committee is to remain alert, organized and responsive to any legislation
affecting the Land Title Industry in order to effectively respond to issues
as they develop. The Committee and Board work closely with a lobbyist firm to identify, monitor, and proactively support or oppose legislative bills each session. The advocacy team works collaboratively with a number of other associations and agency groups to craft Nebraska legislation that is responsible, timely and effective. Association members also donate to the NLTA Political Action Committee (PAC), which separately raises and donates funds to political candidates and measures. Together they work to educate members and the public of the intricacies of the land title industry.
