ALTA is looking for Faculty for the 2024 ALTA SPRINGBOARD. This event is the springboard that helps ALTA members accelerate their businesses and their careers through interactive discussion and problem solving around title industry challenges.
The format of ALTA SPRINGBOARD is different from the typical ALTA meeting, so the Faculty duties are also different.
We are looking for Discussion Facilitators to lead thoughtful and interactive round-table discussions and brainstorm sessions on today’s hottest topics relevant to the title insurance industry as well as Speakers for a limited series on career advancement.
Discussion Facilitators should:
- Encourage positive and inclusive dialogue
- Be solution oriented
- Ask thought provoking questions
- Speak less and listen more
