NJLTA HONORS MONMOUTH COUNTY CLERK M. CLAIRE FRENCH
The New Jersey Land Title Association has announced that the first recipient of the newly-created Presidential Award will be Monmouth County Clerk, M. Claire French. Citing Mrs. French’s cutting edge efforts in the advancement of county recording systems, this award will be formally presented at the President’s Gala at the NJLTA Business and Education Convention on Monday, May 23 at the Crystal Springs Resort.
Elected as the Monmouth County Clerk in 1997, a time when the application of electronic technology to recording processes was beginning to take hold, Mrs. French had the vision to propose and oversee the creation ofNew Jersey’s e-recording Portal. At an initial cost of nearly one million dollars, the Portal, which was designed by Sunrise Systems, Inc., allows New Jersey’s participating counties to achieve a level of electronic recording regardless of the imaging system they have in use. Presently 12 ofNew Jersey’s counties participate. The Portal has received several awards for Technology in Government from the State ofNew Jersey.
