3 Can’t-Miss Workshops For Mobile Notaries At NNA 2015

Keep up with Notary industry needs and regulation changes by attending workshops at the NNA 2015 Conference.

One of the biggest challenges for self-employed Notaries is keeping up with the demands of the market — from the growing volume of government regulations to evolving industry needs. That’s on top of the day-to-day details of running your own business and planning its progress.

To help, NNA 2015 Conference, scheduled for May 31-June 3 in Orlando, Florida, is offering a wide range of practical workshopsexpert speakers and networking events.

Here are three “can’t miss” sessions that will help Notaries learn and thrive this year:

Presenter: David Shean, Owner of First Class Signing Services

The new Closing Disclosure replaces the HUD-1 and TILA forms with a looming deadline of August 1. Shean will explore the key changes you’ll need to make to accommodate the new consolidated form.

Confident Tax Planning and Preparation for NSAs

Presenter: Daniel Yowell, Owner of Yowell’s Notary Service 

Geared specifically to the unique business of the NSA, Yowell will focus on:

  • Making your financial life easier so you can focus on earning money
  • Learning how to maximize your business deductions
  • Understanding the importance of accurate expense records
  • Avoiding missteps that lead to IRS penalties

How to Launch a Signing Service: Case Studies of Two Notaries Who Did

Presenters: Steve Allison and Dean Calvert, Owners of The Closers, Inc. You’ll hear success stories and many simple, user-friendly tips for inaugurating your own business.

Check out the NNA 2015 schedule for the entire list of networking events and workshops.

To reduce the amount of paper attendees need to carry with them in Orlando, all presentation notes have been made available online and can be printed or downloaded to mobile devices at your convenience.

Good morning: I am new a this business. I have read the manual in order to prepare myself for the test I am about to take. For what I have read, I see NSA's are working against all odds and receiving a poorly rewarded compensation (commissions) for their efforts. Can this situation be changed by making their compensation part of the business transaction as is the Realtor, the Lawyer and the Mortgage bank? Thank you,
