The NNA’s 34th annual Conference kicks off this Sunday with unparalleled opportunities for Notaries to network with colleagues, discuss professional challenges, exchange tips and advice, and enjoy socializing with old and new friends. This year’s Conference kicks off with a Welcome Reception Sunday evening at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina, where attendees can meet in a casual environment. Over the next three days, attendees will participate in a variety of innovative labs, specialized panel discussions, interactive workshops, and NNA signature events offering ample opportunities to network with others in your field and discuss key Notary issues with colleagues and experts. Attendees at Monday evening’s “What Lenders Expect From NSAs” General Assembly will be invited to break off into specialized networking “stations” based on their geographic region or career focus, such as mobile Notaries or Notary Signing Agents. A station designed for first-time Conference attendees will offer tips for ensuring a successful Conference experience, and is a great place for Notaries to meet colleagues from across the nation. A series of industry-specific roundtable workshops will feature interactive Q&A sessions where participants are encouraged to introduce themselves and share experiences and questions. Roundtables include: Roundtable: NSA Roundtable: County Recorders Roundtable: Healthcare Roundtable: Estate Planning For more details on these and other Conference events, check out this year’s complete Conference agenda.
