"The drafting and introduction of the SECURE Notarization Act could not have been accomplished without Michael's dedication and expertise," ALTA CEO
"I'm honored to receive the We Lead Award," O'Neal said. "When I joined the title industry, I did not believe my experienced coworkers who said they continued to learn something new every day. Twenty years later, I believe it! Although our industry is relatively small, we punch above our weight because we are blessed with a wealth of expertise. Our ability to respond within days of the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and draft the SECURE Notarization Act was due to years of consideration and collaboration that ALTA helped lead."
"When considering anyone for an ALTA Our Values Award, the work group looks for someone truly serving others in an extraordinary way," Grubb said. "Michael's persistence and understanding of the details and the impact of potential changes placed him in a unique position to lead this legislative effort. Without Michael, our industry would have missed the opportunity to be the national leader of the SECURE Notarization Act."
