The Palmetto Land Title Association is pleased to announce that effective July 5th Rhonda Amick has assumed the role of executive director, a position established by the Board to support its strategic goals. Kim Burkett faithfully served PLTA for 16 years as executive secretary and is resigning this position to pursue other career options.
After a 27- year career as chief operating officer at the law firm of Turner Padget Graham & Laney, P.A., Rhonda started a consulting business in January of this year to provide various management, administrative and strategic planning services for professional service firms and nonprofit organizations. A member of PLTA advised Rhonda of PLTA’s recruiting efforts for a part time executive director and felt that her experience in many key business processes and ability to listen and communicate would be a good match for the needs of the association.
“We are excited to have the level of professional experience and depth of operational skills that Rhonda brings to PLTA. The Board feels that Rhonda’s talents support our strategic goals and plans for heightened services to the association,” said Jennifer Rubin, the Association's President. Rhonda’s early career included experience as a title abstractor and paralegal, working for real estate attorneys and Lawyers Title Insurance Corporation as well as her own state-wide title abstracting service. This hands-on experience assists her understanding of the functional work of the members of Palmetto Land Title Association.
The executive director reports generally to the Board of Directors and has overall operational responsibilities for the management of the Association, reporting directly to the Association’s President. Rhonda’s duties will include preparation of board meeting agendas, conference planning, membership communication, internal systems analysis and improvement, public relations and social media.
“My entire career was spent leading through others and utilizing my ability to engage independent thinking professionals in collaborative efforts and projects for the benefit of the whole”, said Rhonda. “I am excited to join PLTA at this point in its strategic growth”.
Rhonda lives in Chapin where she enjoys lake living and entertaining family and friends. Her son, Brent, is a systems administrator in a market research company in Nashville, and her daughter, Morgan, and son-in-law, Marshall, are both medical students in Greenville.
