Learn About The New Standard
Of Care At Conference 2010

Every Notary will benefit directly from attending the Notary Event of the Year, where you can learn how to protect the public from fraud, discover new ways to improve your earnings by growing your Notary Signing Agent business and meet the state officials who oversee Notary licensing and practice. Next summer, Chicago will host for the first time the NNAs 32nd Annual Conference, themed the New Standard of Care.

Many states are now enacting new, stricter guidelines for Notary Public conduct. And with a landmark Illinois Appellate Court ruling in Vancura v. Katris, opining that following the minimum requirements of state law when notarizing may not be enough to prevent a fraud from occurring, there is an urgent need for Notaries to fully understand and follow best practices. Conference 2010 will offer a variety of workshops and keynote presentations to help Notaries adhere to the highest professional standards and guard themselves from negligence and liability.

Notaries attending Conference will learn about the Vancura case in detail and how it affects their work. Attendees also will be trained in comparing their state laws to best practices so they will know when they need to go above and beyond local guidelines to protect themselves fully from liability.

For Notary Signing Agents, there will be information on how the New Standard of Care affects their specialization, along with a look at the new professional code of ethics being developed for Signing Agents. And of course, there will be plenty of workshops on the essential basics of notarization and on how to grow ones Signing Agent or Notary business.
