Who You Meet At Conference As Important As The Training

With NNA 2013 Conference now just weeks away, Notaries are checking the schedule and highlighting the workshops that are most personally beneficial. But an equally important Conference element is networking. That prospect has become even more valuable this year in addition to meeting colleagues from around the country, members have an unprecedented opportunity to network directly with the largest employers of Signing Agents in the country. Executive-level representatives from a dozen major banks and title companies will “meet, greet and recruit” signing professionals at a special networking event on Monday, June 3.

Veteran Conference attendees have long recognized that the opportunity to network with industry leaders and fellow Notaries is one of the more important benefits of the NNA’s annual Conference.

Verna Jones, owner of V.M. Jones Enterprises from Columbus, Ohio, loves meeting with fellow attendees to find new ideas and learn how her peers are handling their assignments.

Daniel Lewis, owner of his own signing service, keeps an informal journal of how much business he’s acquired since he started attending the NNA Conferences, and believes it has increased his business at least 10% each year. “I attribute much of that to the networking opportunities at Conference,” he said. “Networking with authors of Notary publications helps adjust your perspective on the industry. And networking with various Secretaries of State gives a perspective on how state laws are developed, giving me a distinct advantage over other Notary signing companies.”

Debbie Hartwick, who will attend her eighth event this year, said, “NNA Conferences lay down excellent educational groundwork, and every Conference I’ve attended has deepened my notarial knowledge. I haven’t missed one since my very first. And I really value the fun social events where I can meet other Notaries.”
