The mission of the Association is to advance the efficient and secure transfer of ownership of real property by proactively serving its members, the consumer, and affiliated associations. The VLTA PAC exists to support VLTA’s legislative efforts on behalf of its members.

Why should you support the PAC?

VLTA 2017 272In recent years, VLTA has vetted and reviewed hundreds of pieces of proposed legislation. Without firm and flourishing relationships with our state legislators, we won’t get the face-time we need to promote or defeat legislation affecting our industry. Your donations support our lobbying efforts specifically for the VIRGINIA land title industry

How much should you donate?

VLTA 2017 011$25        30 minutes of face-time with legislators at a caucus event

$50        Suggested annual membership donation

$250      General House or Senate campaign contribution

$500      Committee Chair campaign contribution

Every donation matters. If every member of VLTA gave just $5, we’d be able to fund contributions for 2 years!
