3) Are there any costs to becoming an FLTA member?

Answer:

Agency/Law Firm Member

Full voting Agency/Law Firm membership in FLTA for $500 per year. 

Associate Membership 

Associate membership is available to vendors to our industry and governmental agencies whose activities include land title matters. It is a non-voting membership for $325 per year. NO LAW FIRMS or TITLE AGENCIES. 

List Branch Offices

Each branch office is charged $100 annually per additional office listed.   

 

 

 

4) What is TIFPAC and why should I say YES?

 

Answer:

TIFPAC stands for Title Insurance of Florida Political Action Committee.   The funds which members choose to contribute to this account are used by FLTA to educate legislators about issues and legislation which affect the title industry.  TIFPAC funds help establish FLTA as a meaningful political force in Florida by allowing FLTA to support those who support the title industry.

Saying “YES” on the member application allows FLTA to transfer a portion of the membership funds to this special account. To be taken seriously in Tallahassee (like the Realtors and Home Builders), FLTA’s participation in the political arena is necessary.  Without TIFPAC funds, we are limited in our potential success,  so encouraging agents to say YES to this option is just as important as convincing them to be an FLTA member.  

 

 

5) I'm a Branch of a Company who's a member of FLTA. Will I be charged to become a member?

Answer: Yes, a Branch Office pays an annual fee of $100. Once this fee is paid, the employees of your branch may then join at no extra charge by using the “an employee of a member” option in the “Join FLTA” section of our site. 

  

6) Why can’t I be an Associate Member and pay $325?

Answer: Associate membership is available to vendors to our industry and governmental agencies whose activities include land title matters. It is a non-voting membership. NO LAW FIRMS or TITLE AGENCIES.  If your company is regularly and primarily engaged in the commercial enterprise of preparing and certifying abstracts of title and/or searches for title insurance, conducting real estate closings, or in writing title insurance as a Title Insurance Agent in the State of Florida either duly licensed as a Title Insurance Agent by and in good standing with the Florida Department of Financial Services or appointed to a title insurer and exempt from licensure under Section 626.8417, Florida Statutes, or an attorney licensed by and in good standing with The Florida Bar,  then you must  apply for Regular Membership in this Association, and are not eligible for the Associate member category.   

 

 

7) How do I access the Members Only tab?

Answer: You MUST be a member to access the “Members Only” webpages.  If you are a member, login using your email address and password to access the “Members Only” tab.

  

8) How do I sign up for the Member Webinars?

Answer: If you are a member you will need to login to your profile and click on “Members Only – Webinar registration” tab. That will take you to the link to sign up for the webinars at no charge. If you are NOT a member you would need to click on the link in “Upcoming Events” and pay the NON-member fees to attend the class. 

 

 

9) I’m a member, why am I being charged for the webinar?

Answer: Webinars are FREE to members.  If you are being asked for a payment then you are using the wrong link. You should log into the FLTA website and click on “Members Only – Webinar registration”. This will take you to the link to sign up for the webinar AT NO CHARGE!!

 

 

10) Why can’t everyone in our company use one email address to join FLTA?

Answer: The email you use for the FLTA website is specific to YOUR profile. The information contained in the profile identifies YOU.  The more information about YOU that you include in your profile will help us make sure you are invited to events in your area (the reason we ask you for your County), to CE related webinars, (the reason we ask for your DFS license # or if you are a member of the Florida Bar,) and to make sure you have the most up to date bulletins regarding title matters in Florida.

 

 

11) My Company is a member why can’t I get to the members only page?

Answer: You must be in our data base as “an employee of a member” to access Members ONLY materials.  Once your company becomes a member you should then go to “Join FLTA” and join as an employee of your company. There is no additional charge for members of the company that are located in the same office as the Primary Contact (Bundle Administrator) for your company.  Once your profile is created you will be linked to the Primary Contact of your company and you will then have access to all the Members Only sections of our site.

If your company has branch offices, there is an annual fee for each branch to be listed in our data base of $100 per year.
