Developing National Standards for the Property Records Industry
The Property Records Industry Association (PRIA) is a not-for-profit 501 (C)(6) corporation. The Association represents a unique partnership of business and government members of the property records industry, with the end goal of facilitating recordation and access to public property records. This goal is accomplished by facilitating the research, development, creation and implementation of national standards, systems and procedures for the industry.
PRIA is a membership-driven organization, with a board of directors elected by its members who are responsible for management of the association . PRIA Bylaws and Operating Rules provide specific requirements that govern the association’s operations and activities.
The professional skills and industry knowledge provided by PRIA members, combined with a unique diversity and neutral objectivity, make possible responsible evaluation and formulation of industry standards. Following extensive research and discussion, and working cooperatively with our industry alliances, standards, model legislation and best practices are formulated, developed and disseminated. Such work is done on a continuous basis, as new issues continue to challenge the property records.
