In addition to offering complimentary Notary training to military veterans at NNA 2014, the National Notary Association has partnered with Valued Veterans — an organization that connects veterans with Notary opportunities — to provide additional resources and job opportunities for the vets attending the event. Valued Veterans President and CEO Andrew Belt will offer a roadmap and training manual veterans can use to acquire or hone Notary skills during a special conference workshop for vets. His goal is to recruit 1,000 veterans into his Notary signing agent network by the end of this year and provide each of them contract work from clients including American Title Inc. and Title Source. “Mobile Notary skills are a fully transferrable career skill set that can be taken anywhere in the country and used in any industry,” said Belt. “As a veteran myself, I understand how hard it is to transition back into civilian life and find meaningful work. Given the current veterans employment climate, many large lending institutions understand that it’s of reputational and societal value to engage our nation’s warriors for work.” Valued Veterans helps businesses engage with veterans in one common place for Notary services and appraisals and is the only national provider recognized by the VA in the housing and finance arena as a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). Veterans who wish to enhance their resume, get a leg up on the competition, and win timely opportunities for work can register for free training at NNA 2014.
