The Michigan Fidlar eByte: June 2017


Last month, Fidlar Technologies hosted their Tenth Annual Educational Symposium. Nearly 200 guests from over 100 counties attended the event at the Fidlar office in Davenport, Iowa. Guest speakers included Mark Ladd who discussed UETA and the possibilities for the end of the paper document. Industry professionals walked attendees through an electronic land transaction – defining eClosings, eNotarizations, eRecording and eReturns along the way. Jake Gibson, a data security expert from LightEdge, discussed the current state of data security in the industry and the existing threats to the Recorder’s Office.

Additionally, workshops led by county officials were conducted. These sessions examined ways to keep the public informed of services exclusive to the Recorder’s Office like Property Fraud Alert. The symposium was a success and we pride ourselves in the partnerships we have with each and every county.



“This was my first year attending the Educational Symposium as an elected Registrar. The presentations were great and were incredibly informative. The presenters were interactive with the attendees and helped to get ideas and other thought-provoking conversations started. It was great to see how knowledgeable my peers are as well as Fidlar’s employees. I was able to apply what I learned to make the office more efficient and effective. Fidlar is a first class organization, it starts at the top and runs all the way through. I can’t wait for next year’s event!”- Brandon Denby, Livingston County Registrar
