The Placer County Recorder’s Office is proud to host the first “Motherlode” Regional PREP conference to be held on September 11, 2007 at The Ridge Golf Course in Auburn. Please download the registration flyer for more information and for registration information.
PREP (Property Records Education Partners) is a government/business partnership formed for recorders, title companies, real estate brokers and agents, escrow agents, lenders, underwriters, vendors, and other sectors of the real estate industry (please see also http://www.pria.us/prep_what_is.asp). This conference continues a series of successful PREP conferences held over the last year and a half in the Bay Area, Southern California, and Northern California.
The scheduled topics of discussion at this conference are an eRecording update from Suzanne Wiggins of the California AG’s Office (ERDS Regulations) and a panel on AB 1168 featuring Craig Page (CLTA) and Craig Kramer (Sacramento County Recorder). We will also have an “open forum” discussion (time permitting).
By participating in a PREP Chapter, you have the opportunity to discuss industry issues and find solutions to problems at the local level. By networking nationally through PRIA, PREP Chapter participants will become better informed about industry issues and enjoy a stronger voice when addressing federal legislation, electronic recording and standardization concerns. PREP Chapters in Washington and Florida have been formed over the last several years and have been phenomenally successful.
The California statewide PREP Core Group is in the process of forming regional California PREP Chapters (other PREP Chapters are currently being formed in other states as well). In this regard, PREP Chapters do not have membership dues, and each chapter determines its leadership, meeting schedule and agendas. All that is required is your participation – the more the better. Current members include the recorders from Santa Clara, Los Angeles, San Mateo, Ventura, Placer, Contra Costa and Shasta counties, as well as representatives from companies and organizations such as First American, Fidelity National Title, LandAmerica, Southland Title, California Land Title Association, Executive Brokers and the California Association of Realtors.
