The Washington Land Title Association (WLTA) is a non-profit association composed of trade professionals that promote high quality land title evidencing and title insurance services in the State of Washington. We actively promote sound and ethical business practices; provide educational opportunities for our membership in all areas of title evidencing and title insurance and facilitate effective communication within our industry and with our affiliated real estate professionals.
Formed in 1905, membership is composed of national title insurance underwriters and independent title agents as well as professionals and vendors from related fields of endeavor. The WLTA is governed by an Executive Committee from its membership, including the elected positions of President and Vice President and the Immediate Past President and Chair of the Agents’ Committee.
Of special importance is the work of our Legislative Committee, which continuously monitors the legislative process in order to propose, promote and support legislation that meets the high professional standards of the Association, and to actively oppose legislation that does not. Our political action committee, TITAC, supports legislators who work for these same standards. The WLTA also encourages participation in the American Land Title Association’s Title Action Network (TAN).
Members also participate in other active committees, including those reporting on judicial cases, following Indian affairs and maintaining liaison with the Office of the Insurance Commissioner.
The WLTA supports it’s members and other real estate professionals by offering annual title and escrow educational seminars, and it maintains an Examiners Manual exclusively for its members.
