California Escrow Association Announces New Officers for 2007.

New Leaders Vow to Continue Organization's Commitment to Promoting Practitioner and Consumer Education

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The California Escrow Association (CEA), the state's largest professional organization serving the escrow industry, announced its officers for 2007. The announcement was made at CEA's annual conference in Ontario, California.

CEA's officer appointments have been awarded to Fran Butler, president; Deb Perry, president-elect; Kathy Lozano, vice president; Donna Grosso, secretary-treasurer; and Irene Genders, past president advisor. The new officers' term is effective January 1.

"As the premier organization serving thousands of escrow professionals throughout California, CEA's entire executive board remains dedicated to the organization's mission of providing the most up-to-date information available about important escrow related matters," Fran Butler said. "In 2007, CEA will continue to serve escrow professionals and consumers alike, in addition to working side-by-side with our advocate in Sacramento to address important legislative issues relevant to the escrow and real estate industries, as well as the consumers we serve."

CEA's new executive board brings together top-tier professionals in real estate and escrow from throughout the state. In addition to continuing CEA's research on legislation affecting the escrow industry, Butler also aims to lead CEA in combating real estate fraud by educating industry professionals as well as the public on what these predatory practices entail. Butler also plans to establish involvement in Operation Gratitude, a charity organization that seeks to lift troops' morale by sending care packages to service members overseas.

Founded in 1956, the California Escrow Association (CEA) is a statewide organization for professional escrow practitioners with more than 2,700 members. The organization is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards in escrow through continuing education and legislative advocacy. CEA is the only organization throughout California offering a statewide program for professional designation of escrow officers based on comprehensive examination. To stay on top of the ever-changing escrow industry, Professional Designation holders are required to earn continuing education credits and maintain membership status in CEA as a requirement of their designations. In addition to its professional designation program, CEA works with community colleges throughout the state to develop CEA-approved curricula leading to a certificate in Escrow. CEA also presents educational opportunities throughout the State for escrow professionals, including the three-day Annual Education Conference in October. CEA's dedicated legislative advocate screens proposed legislation to gauge its effect on the escrow profession, and to draft new legislation as needed.
