Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Corporation Service Company® (CSC®) has announced the winners of its 2013 eRecording All-Star Awards. These awards recognize government recording offices for advancements in electronic document recording.
The eRecording All-Star Awards honor the work of clerks and recorders who have implemented and promoted the use of eRecording technology. The four award categories for 2013 were: the Model County Award, the Leader of the Pack Award, the Trailblazer Award and the Rookie of the Year Award. View this year's award winners here.
Model County Award – Butler County, OH
The Model County Award recognizes a recording office that has a long and established history of eRecording documents and of serving as a model for other offices. Butler County Recorder Danny Crank reports that his office started the first PRIA-compliant eRecording program in Ohio and has since moved its eRecording percentage from 3% in 2005 to 30% in 2013. Crank is also a frequent speaker on eRecording topics, having presented to the Ohio Recorders’ Association, the Ohio Land Title Association and the Ohio Bar Association.
Leader of the Pack Award – Maricopa County, AZ
The Leader of the Pack Award recognizes a recording office that is recording the majority of its real estate documents electronically and is encouraging submitters to adopt eRecording processes. The Maricopa County Recorder’s Office reports that it has been electronically recording documents since 1998 and now has five interactive recording kiosks in the outlying regions of the county. County Recorder Helen Purcell and her staff often give tours of their office to others interested in the eRecording process.
Trailblazer Award – Greenville County, SC
The Trailblazer Award recognizes a recording office that has led its state in implementing or further developing eRecording technology. The Greenville County Register of Deeds’ office reports that it was the first county in South Carolina to electronically record a document in April 2010 and is now the most active county in the state, eRecording nearly 10% of its documents. Register of Deeds Tim Nanney was the Large County Representative to the South Carolina Electronic Recording Commission and is now working to modernize requirements and implement government-to-government eRecording solutions.
Rookie of the Year Award – Rockland County, NY
The Rookie of the Year Award recognizes a recording office that has made tremendous advancements in implementing eRecording technology within a short time frame. Rockland County Clerk Paul Piperato helped champion legislation in 2012 that permitted eRecording in New York, and his office was the first in the state to eRecord. The clerk’s office quickly reduced its turnaround time from six to eight weeks for paper documents to a matter of hours for eRecorded documents.
A committee composed of CSC management and operations staff selected the four award winners, who will receive commemorative trophies to honor their accomplishments.
“We’re very pleased to recognize these counties for their contributions to the document recording industry,” said Mark Rosser, vice president for CSC. “We received a large number of nominations from very qualified and respected recording offices, but these four stood out as real champions of the eRecording process.”
