WHY JOIN AEA?
AEA’s goals are to further the knowledge and professionalism of the settlement professional through education and to educate and advise decision makers in the federal government on issues of consequence to the settlement industry.
AEA monitors and reports legislative and regulatory matters to our membership and meets with the leadership of related industry trade associations to address issues that affect the entire settlement industry, as well as exploring other opportunities for exchange of information and education forums in addition to AEA’s Annual Educational Conference held in June of each year. One such opportunity resulted in the formation of PREP, Property Records Education Partners, by AEA, ALTA, NACRC and IACREOT.
