A delegation of TLTA members attended the American Land Title Association Advocacy Summit 2018, which was held in Washington, D.C. May 21-23. 
ALTA's program included meetings with other state land title associations, a keynote from CFPB's Interim Director Mick Mulvaney, and numerous updates on federal issues. Our TLTA delegation held 14 different meetings on the Hill with members of Congress and their staffs, including Congressman Al Green (ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee), Congressman Roger Williams, Congressman Jodey Arrington and others.
When asked how our congressional delegation can help TLTA accomplish our goals, we kept it simple:
· Support legislation to fix the simultaneous issue conflict with TRID
· Support passage of the GUIDE Compliance Act

Additionally, TLTA members met with key staff at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). In addition to introducing TLTA to the new leadership within the agency, we discussed the simultaneous issue problem, as well as how best the industry can engage in the CFPB's request for information process that is underway.
