One of the hottest subjects currently trending in the title industry is eClosing, which makes The Future of eClosings, a webinar presented on May 10, by the Michigan Land Title Association (MLTA), a highly relevant topic.
The event was a Q&A style discussion featuring four panelists and an MLTA moderator. Among the industry experts who participated on the panel was Title Source Chief Operating Officer, Brian Hughes, who recently submitted a position paper on the subject to the NASS Remote Notarization Task Force.
“There’s a lot of buzz about eClosing right now,” says Title Source Talent Strategist, Emily Schonberg, who is a member of the MLTA’s Young Title Professional Technology Sub Committee. “This webinar was a must for anybody looking to stay up-to-date on the granular details within the trend.”
The webinar was designed to educate listeners on common terms and definitions, to discuss how eClosing is expected to change the process, and to touch on a range of issues and concerns such as the misconceptions about eClosing replacing the need for signing agents.
Other industry experts scheduled to participate on the panel were Simon Moir of eOriginal, Rick Triola of NotaryCam and Mark Ladd of Simplifile.
“It’s really important to be able to speak in an informed manner on the subject,” says Schonberg. “This webinar provided a great opportunity for people to really get an understanding of the topic.”
