Program Description

First-timers, Ambassadors

Learn how PRIA functions and gets things done.

Probing the Future of the Property Records Industry - A Land Records Summit

Recording jurisdictions and the mortgage and title industries have faced many challenges since the advent of the foreclosure crisis. Currently, there is increased scrutiny from regulators and multiple proposed solutions from members of Congress, the Federal Reserve, State Attorney Generals and others. It is time for industry stakeholders to "put everything on the table." The session was an open discussion to shape the future of both paper and electronic public land records including such topics as: national registries, barriers to recording real estate transactions, and increasing adoption of electronic mortgages and recording.

Promoting the Recorder's Office

A recap of the program developed by PRIA to educate the general public and industry constituents on the role of the recorder's office.


Dr. Katrin B. Anacker is currently an Assistant Professor at George Mason University's School of Public Policy. Her primary areas of expertise include housing, housing policy, urban policy, race and public policy, real estate markets, statistical methods, qualitative methods, and research writing.

Multi-generational Workforces

With every year that passes, the people coming into the workforce are getting relatively younger. From the way they present themselves to what makes them tick requires a new approach to leading and managing the multiple generations currently in the work force. Find out how it can be done!

Land Fraud and Its Impact on the Validity of Public Records

Whose responsibility is it to be sure the recorded documents are accurate? Validity of the records is necessary to maintain the integrity of recorder’s office. Are your records tainted? Would one national recording system make the records more/less secure?

eRecording eXcellence

A continuation of the discussion started in September 2011 at the PRIA Annual Conference, and then at the Minneapolis eRecording Summit. This was a collaborative, thought-provoking session on how to engage and expand eRecording across the country.
