Agent Survey: Times are Changing - Are You Changing Too?

EClosings, remote online notarizations, and blockchain - oh 
my! The influx of new technologies and processes is pressuring our industry to adapt to these innovations. Let CATIC help you stay on the cutting edge!
 
We at CATIC are committed to ensuring that any changes to current practices continue to promote the role of the attorney and independent title agent in the settlement process. It is our core belief that the attorney or independent title agent plays an invaluable role for the client that cannot be replaced by another party, such as the lender or a notary. Though the methods of communicating with the client may change with the introduction of new technologies and processes, the need for the client to work closely with an expert advisor will remain.
 
Six months ago, CATIC hosted a webinar on eClosings, which was the company's most well-attended webinar to date. Prior to the webinar, we asked you to share with us the questions and concerns you had about eClosings and other emerging market trends. More than 300 of you responded to this survey, giving us a better sense of how to tailor the eClosings webinar to benefit you.
 
We would like to once again ask you to submit your feedback to help ensure we continue to provide educational resources that help your businesses reach new heights. Please take a few minutes to respond to the survey link below. The results of this survey will be used to help CATIC produce another webinar about market trends, emerging technologies, and promoting the role of the attorney and independent title agent in this changing climate. Don't miss out on this opportunity to share your thoughts!

To allow us to consider all of your submitted questions, please complete the survey by the close of business today, Tuesday, May 1 . Also, keep an eye out for an announcement for our upcoming webinar, coming on June 5.
 
Should you have any questions about this upcoming webinar or the survey, please contact Ashley Sadler or Zach Kammerdeiner.
