Are you considering membership in NALTEA but need some questions answered first?  You have come to the right place.  See the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions below.  If you are satisfied with the answers, please return to the NALTEA home page and print out your application.  If you have further questions, feel free to contact us at the email address listed above.  We look forward to adding you to our membership ranks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question:  In which category of membership do I belong?

Answer:  If you are an owner, or principal of a company that derives more than 70% of its gross annual revenue from the business of researching, abstracting, examining, reporting or retrieving land records, you should apply as a Corporate/Independent.  If you are an employee of a company, and your job consists of land title research or examining, you should apply for Individual Membership.  If you are not eligible for either of the above, you may apply for Associate Membership.

Question:  How much are dues?

Answer:  Dues for Corporate/Independent and Individual memberships are currently set at $100 per year.  The dues for Associate members are $200.  Dues are payable each year on or before September 1st.

Question:  What benefits will I receive with my membership?

Answer:  You will receive the benefit of promotion in our on-line directory and in our printed directory.  You will have an opportunity to earn certification as a highly competent Abstractor or Examiner.  Qualified members may earn either of two designations:  NALTEA Certified Abstractor (NCA) or NALTEA Master Abstractor (NMA) to signify their above-average knowledge and experience.

If you are listed in the directory of the Source of Title website, your listing will note you as a NALTEA member with a bold N beside your listing.  Source of Title also generously offers NALTEA members significant discounts on enhanced listings and annual subscriptions.  Once your membership is established, you will have access to additional beneficial cost savings listed in our members-only section.

You will be invited to attend our annual October conference, with the opportunity to meet, learn and discuss important issues with others in your chosen field of work. 

Perhaps the most important of all is that your membership and efforts will help to educate the greater title industry as to the importance of local knowledge and experience where title searching, examining and abstracting are concerned.
