Since this is a new association, some may be wondering what the function of or the need of the association is or will be. To that end, Spencer offers this response:

Due to technology, the title industry in Alabama has changed from local competition to national competition. Advances in technology simplify our daily lives and increase our knowledge by giving us tremendous amounts of data at our fingertips. These advances, while helping us, can also work against local businesses by making it much easier for national companies to compete in our market. Even with brick-and-mortar laws in place the increased competition from title companies around the country has made an association for Alabama title agents and professionals a must. One function of this association will be to act as a voice for Alabama title professionals to preserve and grow the industry at a state and local level. To ensure that this voice is heard, a strong and active membership is necessary. If you are in the title business, whether as an abstractor, agent, underwriter, or an associate who relies on providing services to the title business for their livelihood, I encourage you to become a member today.
