I just returned from attending the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) annual summer conference in Indianapolis. A terrific event held by caring public officials who also know how to throw a good party.
This was a return trip for me, having been invited by NASS to present NotaryCam’s platform back in 2013 in Alaska (I didn’t know about their fun extra curricular activities and missed a fabulous glacier cruise ride). What seems like a lifetime ago we were invited into the ‘Lion’s Den’, as 49 Secretaries of State were not pleased what we were doing under Virginia legislation, which was passed the year before. Although we alleviated concerns about technology replacing a physical in person session, not much had changed, until now. Montana followed Virginia a couple of years later and within the last 45 days Texas, Nevada, and Ohio joined the ranks.
There was definitely a different aura at last week’s session – almost a FOMO setting in (fear of missing out). There appears to be as many as 10 additional states poised for passage in the next legislation session, allowing each respective state’s notaries the same ability to use advanced audio-visual conferencing to meet with their signers as the notaries in VA and MT… more notaries in the pool!
Having serviced over 50,000 users all over the US and now nearly 70 countries we learned that not only is this process compliant and convenient but also keeps notaries relevant in a fast moving and on demand society – not to mention that these most respected professionals finally have an opportunity to earn a full-time wage…and we’re hiring.
BTW, we received this testimonial last night – just a sample of the great effort by our amazing team of certified professional notaries/signing agents:
“NotaryCam truly saved the day. We had to coordinate getting 5 people to sign with a notary and we only had one day to do it otherwise our home sale was going to fall apart. If we didn’t have NotaryCam as an option there is no way we could have gotten everyone to take time out of their busy day to meet with a notary on their own. They made it incredibly simple and effortless for everyone involved. Now I know exactly who to come to next time I need a notary. “
