NTLA 2023 Fall Symposium in Chicago: A Resounding Success

Over 100 seasoned professionals and enthusiastic newcomers gathered to network, discuss pressing issues facing the tax lien and deed industry, and learn from some of the brightest minds in the field. 

Chicago, IL – October 4 & 5, 2023 – The National Tax Lien Association (NTLA) proudly wrapped up its 2023 Fall Symposium in the heart of Chicago, and it was nothing short of a resounding success. Over 100 seasoned professionals and enthusiastic newcomers gathered to network, discuss pressing issues facing the tax lien and deed industry, and learn from some of the brightest minds in the field. This event, held on October 4 and 5, 2023, not only promoted knowledge sharing but also reinforced the NTLA's commitment to fostering growth in the industry.

The NTLA, a national not-for-profit trade association, hosts two conferences each year, providing its members and attendees invaluable opportunities to connect with peers, clients, and industry leaders. The 2023 Fall Symposium was no exception, bringing together a diverse group of professionals who share a passion for tax lien and deed investments.

One of the highlights of the event was the heartfelt contribution of our incredible volunteers. They dedicated their time to creating TidyKit bags, which were later distributed to bring joy to Ronald McDonald House and Chicago families in need. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to these dedicated volunteers for their selfless efforts. Special thanks also go out to our event sponsor, Phillips Lytle LLP, for their generous support.

The success of the NTLA 2023 Fall Symposium would not have been possible without the continued support of our loyal conference sponsors: Firstrust Bank, Tax Sale Resources, Robbins Consulting Management, US Tax Deed Solutions, Lumentum, Firefly Legal, Capital One, and Phillips Lytle LLP. We truly appreciate your unwavering commitment to our cause.

We also extend a special thank you to our NTLA board of directors for their dedication and leadership. Their guidance and vision have been instrumental in the growth of our organization.

The educational sessions at the symposium were a true highlight, featuring insightful speakers from various backgrounds. Here are some notable quotes from these sessions:

Financing Tax Liens: Robert Keyser emphasized, "Depending on the redemption period, you are looking into 2+ years into the future." Beverly Abrahams added, "As a lender, my job is to understand your buying model and be a good partner in supporting your success and growth throughout the tax lien cycle."

Artificial Tax Sales (AI) and Tax Sales: Evan Heraras shed light on the topic by saying, "FHA loans have an 80% more likely chance of redeeming."

Navigating Change — Government Response to Tyler vs. Hennepin County Ruling: Sarah Benetar encouraged attendees by stating, "The laws are going to change, and we can either sit back, or be the drivers of that change." Adam Greenberg posed the question, "How many certificates go to foreclosure after the sale?" To which Marc Rubinsohn responded, "Less than 1%, it's not a one-size-fits-all solution."

How Americans Handle Tax Foreclosures: Brad Westover provided a thought-provoking perspective, noting, "$22 billion dollars is equivalent to 275 new high schools, 352 school teacher salaries, 3,144 new police or fire stations, or $4.4 million in scholarships. The moment we give up on safe cities and educating children, I just can't live with that."

As we bid farewell to the NTLA 2023 Fall Symposium, we invite you to save the date for our NTLA 2024 Annual Conference & Meeting in Coconut Grove, FL, scheduled for March 6-8. It promises to be another opportunity for like-minded professionals to come together and continue the journey of promoting the tax lien and deed industry.

The NTLA is deeply grateful to all participants, sponsors, and volunteers for their support in making this event a monumental success. Together, we are shaping the future of the tax lien and deed industry, and we look forward to achieving even greater heights in the years to come.
