With the housing market on the rebound, NNA 2013 Conferenceattendees will have a golden opportunity to position themselves to take advantage of the improving economy. The conference program includes on-site training to become an NNA Certified Notary Signing Agent. Education and certification are becoming important elements for success in the signing industry, and in this increasingly regulated environment, major companies such as First American Mortgage Services prefer to hire NNA Certified NSAs. The NSA training will be divided into two sessions — conducted by an expert NSA guest presenter — and both are required for certification. Texas Notaries may choose to take the Texas state certification examination and undergo background screening immediately following the course, for a discounted fee. Notaries from other states will go home confident that they have received the training necessary to “ace” the examination in their home state. Apart from Certification training, NNA 2013 also is offering a variety of specialized workshops for Signing Agents — whether you are brand new to the industry or a seasoned veteran. NSA newbies, for example, can attend a workshop that walks them through each step of a loan closing, while experienced Signing Agents can learn how to improve their marketing efforts. And last but definitely not least, for the first time at Conference, NSAs will have the unprecedented opportunity to meet directly with the largest lenders and title companies in the country that will be on hand to recruit new loan closers at an evening networking event. Top level executives from the following organizations have confirmed attendance: First American Mortgage Services LandSafe Title Services/Bank of America Citibank JPMorgan Chase Wells Fargo U.S. Bank ServiceLink Mortgage Connect American Title, Inc.
