Omaha, NE--Diane L. Battiato, Douglas County register of deeds, recently returned from the National Association of County Recorders, Election Officials and Clerks (NACRC) Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C.
NACRC members convened for sessions about the latest topics affecting land records, records management, court administration, clerk to board, vital statistics, and elections administration. Attendees discussed legal and privacy aspects of social media and participated in roundtable discussions about various topics.
"This meeting gives attendees an opportunity to learn from fellow county officials across the United States and provides a forum to share innovative ideas and practices, and discuss policy," Battiato said.
One of the discussion groups focused on the growing use of electronic recording, commonly known as e-recording. Through e-recording, a business or individual can file documents electronically, via the Internet. Battiato was instrumental in bringing the process to Douglas County in 2009; her office was the first to e-record in Nebraska. Since then, at least 19 more Nebraska counties have begun to e-record.
NACRC, founded in 1949, is a professional organization of elected and appointed county administration officials who network nationally to share information and ideas. The association provides continuing education, technology updates and a stronger voice on federal legislative issues. NACRC is an affiliate of NACo.
