The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few.
Famous Last Words – Spock – Captain, Retired

I am again asking that you donate to ILTA-PAC. We as title insurance professionals NEED A VOICE. We need to be heard. We need to participate in the government debate. To that end, I am asking for your money. I am asking that you contribute something to ILTAPAC.
IT’S NOT HOW MUCH, IT’S HOW MANY. The amount doesn’t matter. Give $5. Give $50. Give $500. What matters most is not the amount of the individual donation but rather the NUMBER of donations. If our lawmakers knew that 12,500 title insurance professionals felt strongly enough to contribute their hard-earned money to the cause, those lawmakers will take notice. After all, your vote put them there.
We undertook, for the first time ever, a phone solicitation campaign and I am pleased to announce that our participation rate more than doubled from 2016 increasing from 34 participants to 74! If you are one of the 74, thank you! If not, join us.
BE PART OF THE PROCESS. To be clear, your money is not used to buy votes. It is used to gain access to meetings, events, functions, etc. all of which are vital moments to speak about our industry’s concerns. Many “sister” organizations have their opportunities. The Illinois Association of Realtors routinely collects over $1,000,000 a year for its PAC. The Illinois Bankers Association contributes over $75,000 to its PAC. Our goal this year is a mere $50,000. We are still a long way from that goal. Help us reach it.
BE RECOGNIZED. In recognition of their support, contributors in the Silver, Gold and Platinum levels ($250, $500 and $1,000) will be invited to a private reception in the President’s Suite at this year’s ILTA Annual Conference to be held at Lake Lawn Resort in Lake Delevan, WI. See the attached to view who those lucky contributors are!
