Notary Associations come and go but here are the ones who have staying power.
National Notary Associations
National Notary Association — NNA is committed to educating and supporting Notaries throughout the United States while inspiring confidence and unity among them all. Established in 1957, NNA is largest notary association in the United States with nearly a quarter million members. It’s recognized nationally and internationally as an advocate of sound notarial practices. The association also develops technologically advanced products to advance the role of the Notary in the electronic age and evolving industries (i.e., electronic mortgages) and is on the forefront of electronic notarization and recording efforts nationwide.
American Society of Notaries — ASN offers hands-on service and technical support that make ASN members so loyal. The smaller, select membership base enables them to serve you more personally, and the experienced, commissioned notaries on staff spend hours each day researching state notary law to ensure that their technical support is the best it can be. If you’re conscientious, thorough, and driven to be your best, ASN is right for you.
Florida Notary Association
Florida Mobile Notary Assocation & Services, Inc. — The purpose of FMNA is to provide an internet presence that meets the needs of their members, promotes the association and provides a central location for prospective clients (individuals and organizations) to find Florida Notaries Public who are willing to travel to their location to provide that service. Two types of membership are offered to Florida Notaries Public: “Limited Membership” and “Full Membership,” with the Full Membership supplying the most benefits which include: a comprehensive web page listing, a free FLMNA e-mail address, access to the association’s “Yahoo Group” for files and a database for notary and loan closing information, ID badge, newsletters, referrals, toll-free phone support and more.
