MLTA 2017 Convention

Program Highlights


Vista FleetThe success of our industry is built largely on the relationships we form with industry peers. MLTA's convention provides the opportunity for business owners, managers, and executives to connect with title insurance and settlement professionals from around the state. This year is particularly special because it's been 17 years since we've held our convention in Duluth! We have provided several ways attendees can connect with one another while enjoying the beauty of this special city.

On Thursday afternoon, guests can choose to golf at Duluth's Enger Golf Course which features spectacular views of Lake Superior or tour the Glensheen Mansion, the famed home built by mining magnates Chester and Clara Congdon in the early 1900's.

On Thursday evening, we will hold an ice breaker aboard the harbor cruise ship Vista Star which provides the best sightseeing opportunity on Lake Superior and the Duluth Superior Harbor. Entertainment will be provided by Hanson & Hoyt, and an after-party will take place at the hotel!


A full-day of programming has been developed for Friday. Sessions address the key issues business leaders need to be aware of in our rapidly changing profession. Presentations include:

Ken Barnhart is President and Principal Consultant of Higher Ground Security. He is a local cybersecurity expert who will share insights into how cyber sabotage makes its way into businesses and strategies for combatting it.
Cynthia McGovern, Ph.D. Cindy McGovern, Ph.D. holds a masters in marketing and a doctorate degree in Organizational Community (Emphasis in Leadership and Ethics). With extensive experience helping both executives and sales people alike, Cindy will share strategies for enhancing existing sales programs by affecting behavioral change.
Daniel Mennonoh, INT, NTP Daniel Mennenoh, INT, NTP is ALTA's current president. He will share an overview of issues affecting the title insurance industry at the national level including the current political climate, the future of the CFPB; cybersecurity, and technological advancements.
