Southern Title President/CEO Renews National Title Professional Designation
press release, Southern Title

The American Land Title Association (ALTA), the national trade association of the land title insurance industry, recently announced the renewal of the National Title Professional (NTP) designation to Shelley Stewart, CLC, President of Southern Title Holding Company, LLC. Stewart earned the designation because of her extensive title industry experience, her active involvement in the state and national land title associations, and her real estate related education and training.

“Shelley Stewart has continued to demonstrate her commitment to the land title industry throughout her designation term, and we are honored to have her as part of this elite group of designees,” said Deborah L. Scott, Chair of the NTP Council. “Our industry currently faces many challenges and its important to promote professionalism throughout.”

Stewart has taken an active role in the real estate title insurance industry for more than 35 years. She served as President of the Florida Land Title Association (FLTA) in 2008, 2nd Associate VP of the Florida Home Builders Association in 2019, and has held leadership positions in the Volusia Building Industry Association, the Florida Association of Mortgage Brokers, Mortgage Bankers Association, Women’s Council of Realtors, the Volusia-Flagler Title Association and the Daytona Beach Board of Realtors. Most recently, Senator Kathleen Passidomo (R-28) selected Stewart to chair a taskforce subgroup of stakeholders created to research the impact of the state’s Public Records Redaction legislation.

The National Title Professional (NTP) designation recognizes land title professionals who demonstrate the knowledge, experience, and dedication essential to the safe and efficient transfer of real property throughout the United States. The designation has several elements, including industry and compliance prerequisites and training requirements on a national level.
