Thanksgiving is a touchstone for reflection, gratitude, remembrance, and a celebration of the gifts we have received. And, although we aspire to be grateful every day, this holiday is a wonderful reminder to pause, take a deep breath, and give thanks.
The past few years have been marked by unprecedented challenges, including world conflicts, a wildly unpredictable US housing market, the emergence of unregulated title products, and a notable increase in fraud. In the face of those obstacles, we have borne witness to your dedication to serving your customers and communities. Your perseverance and fortitude have been a source of inspiration for me and all of us at Alliant National.
I am truly grateful for the progress we have made together this year. For instance, in this month’s #allnatadvantage newsletter, we learned how the team at Florida’s Brick City Title helped stop a fraudulent cash purchase transaction. Brick City and several other agencies have been recognized this year for their fraud prevention efforts under Alliant National’s Crime Watch program. Their actions are a reminder that daily vigilance is key.
We are also grateful for the agents working with us on our new SecureMyTransaction identity verification product, which we announced in August during our Florida Seminar. Together, we are making significant strides in maintaining the integrity of transactions and protecting consumers.
In both big and small ways, we share an unwavering commitment to helping others realize the American Dream. On this Thanksgiving, I extend my deepest appreciation for your heart of service and gratitude for your partnership with Alliant National.
In 1789, the first Federal Congress passed a resolution asking that the President of the United States recommend to the nation a day of thanksgiving. But it was President Roosevelt who ultimately signed a resolution on December 26, 1941, establishing the fourth Thursday in November as the Federal Thanksgiving Day holiday.
It’s amazing that it took over 150 years to settle on a consistent holiday, especially when you consider that giving thanks has been fundamental to our culture from the very inception of our nation.
Giving thanks is also a key part of our culture at Alliant National. Our people live the spirit of Thanksgiving each day. No one is more important to us than the independent title agents that make the American Dream possible. We celebrate your contributions to the lives of the families you touch and the communities you serve.
As an independent agent:
You protect the rights of homeowners and safeguard their economic liberty to own property and build wealth.
You champion the American virtues of independence, entrepreneurship and self-reliance.
You support important philanthropic causes in the communities you serve.
You take great care of your employees, who in turn, take great care of your customers.
You build a “legacy of opportunity” for all of those who walk into your office – staff and customers alike.
Alliant National recognizes your unique role in preserving our American way of life.
