Latham’s 7 years in business with National Title Solutions have provided the foundation for excellence in the industry that facilitate his success and esteem within the business and customer base. “National Title Solutions is one fo the few consumer-driven title insurance companies -- we’re focused on consumers and their edification with regard to their title insurance options,” explains Latham. “We’re a one-stop shop -- we hold all licenses here, so we don’t farm projects out to other states, which means we’re hands-on and all of our work is done locally, so we can give customers a better deal and work to fulfill their precise needs when they’re buying, selling, or refinancing.” As noted on IMBA’s Facebook page and website (imba.org), the Illinois Mortgage Bankers Association (IMBA) is a not-for-profit trade association comprised of approximately 165 companies and institutions whose business interests revolve around residential and/or commercial mortgage lending. IMBA (pledges) commitment to promote and safeguard the best interests and welfare of the membership and the public it serves. Latham was also nominated for IMBA’s “Best Title Insurance Account Representative” at the 2013 Best In Business Awards, and he hopes to continue the awards & recognition trend into next year. Appreciation, consistency, and continued customer-focus are the order of the day for National Title Solutions, “…especially when we’re kind of the new kid on the block,” says Latham, noting that he brought NTS to Naperville from Florida in 2010. National Title Solutions is headquartered in Woodridge with multiple satellite locations in Naperville; find them at www.ntsnational.com or call (800)NTS-2700. “Most consumers don’t know that they have the right to choose their title insurance company when they’re buying or refinancing,” notes Latham; “Our motto is ‘Exceptional Service is Standard,’ and that says it all.”

    Three years ago, Nevaeh was diagnosed with a neurological speech disorder called apraxia, something her mother, Nichole Latori, nor grandmother, Terri Murrin had never heard of. After spending the past three years researching the disorder and finding the best treatment for Nevaeh, Terri and Nichole decided to change this lack of awareness. On September 12th and 13th they hosted an Apraxia Fund Raiser Yard Sale. They filled Terri’s garage, front yard and 5 tents with items donated for sale. Every person who came to the sale was given information about Childhood Apraxia of Speech is very challenging and complicated neurological speech disorder in children. This little known disorder makes it difficult or impossible for children to accurately produce sounds, syllables, and/or words despite having a good understanding of language. The family raised $1,902.00 and a family member’s company will be matching that amount. A total of $3,804.00 will be donated to the Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech on Saturday, October 18th which also happens to be Nevaeh’s 5th birthday. The Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech is held across the country as a means to heighten awareness and funding. Proceeds from the walk will benefit the local apraxia programs through The Apraxia Connection and national programs and research of the Childhood Apraxia of Spreech Association of North America (CASANA).

  • COD faculty to live-blong board meeting Oct 7, 2014 4:49 PM
    Volunteers from the College of DuPage Faculty Association (CODFA) will live-blog the College of DuPage Board of Trustees Meeting on Thursday evening, Oct 16, beginning at 7pm in Student Services Center 2200. CODFA bloggers cover Board of Trustees meetings in order to keep their own members informed of Board activities and decisions, as well as to share information with the larger community served by the College of DuPage. College of DuPage Trustees are elected by the citizens of District 502. Citizens unable to attend the board meeting can read the blog at this link: http://codfaculty.org/blogs/bot/. The board packet can be downloaded from the college website starting 48 hours before the meeting. See http://www.cod.edu/about/board_of_trustees/. The past several board meetings have seen an escalation of conflict among the trustees themselves, as well as between trustees and citizens, over President Brueder’s conduct during his tenure at the college. The Board of Trustees responded last month by moving comments from the public that did not directly address the evening’s agenda to the end of the meeting. This resulted in the majority of public comments being made after midnight
