2018 ALTA TIPAC Awards
During the 2019 Advocacy Summit, ALTA honored individuals and entities for their effort in helping to raise donations in 2018 for the Title Industry Political Action Committee (TIPAC).
“We are proud to present these awards in honor of the title professionals who understand the commitment to making TIPAC stronger each and every year,” said David Townsend NTP, chair of ALTA’s TIPAC Committee. “It’s not just strength in our dollars, it’s strength in our numbers who believe in what TIPAC does. In 2018, TIPAC raised $551,980 from 979 contributors. This made the 2017-2018 election cycle TIPAC’s most profitable cycle and secured TIPAC as a million-dollar PAC. We could not have done this without the help of our outstanding TIPAC trustees who volunteer their time to raise money for TIPAC. We are proud to present these awards in honor of their commitment to making TIPAC stronger.”
