The Maine 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 Symposium, I found it quite interesting and informative. I particularly liked the section on ways to keep the Registrar’s office relevant. I took copious notes and came back with lots of ideas on how to make our presence known. We’re talking about possibly doing a semi-annual newsletter to keep constituents in the know about recent activity in the office. It was very educational and I hope to be able to join again next year.” – Nikki Stacy, Cheshire County, New Hampshire
