Dear Members and Friends of the PLTA,
We have just returned from the Sweetest Place on Earth for our 93rd Annual Convention and it was absolutely fantastic. Sincere thanks goes out to my predecessor, Francine Wirsching, CLTP, for all her hard work and dedication to the Association. Her leadership down the yellow brick road this past year was extremely beneficial to the members and organization in arriving at the Emerald City. Kudos to Deb McClarigan, CLTP, who was the Convention Committee Chairperson attentive to all the details making our experience in Hershey a memorable one. A big thank you to our vendors and sponsors who generously supported our event!
Our new board was sworn in by Michelle Korsmo, Chief Executive Officer of the American Land Title Association. Michelle also delivered a keynote address which provided industry insight beneficial to all. We were also fortunate to have Lauren McKenna, Partner with Fox Rothschild LLP, present some interesting aspects of title claims. Marc Aronson, President of the Pennsylvania Association of Notaries, brought us up to speed on RULONA, the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Act; more to come on that later.
There were opportunities for some fun in the sun, chocolate, golf, chocolate martinis, cupcakes, chocolate, a dance party, and did I mention chocolate? Some of these great moments were captured by our photographer which you can check out at:

Special awards were distributed at the banquet Monday night with everyone looking their finest. Congratulations to Dallys Novirina recipient of the James G. Schmidt Distinguished Service Award, as well as Chuck Nowicki, recipient of the Albert E. Pentecost Award for outstanding service to the Association. Shonna Cordello received her Associate Land Title Professional designation and Tommi Herbert is now a Certified Land Title Professional. The PLTA is grateful to have all these title professionals!
I look forward to serving you the coming year, along with John Croke, CLTP, as Vice President, Brian Zulli, CLTP, as Treasurer, and Frank McGovern, CLTP, our incoming Secretary.
