The Notary Public Administrators (NPA) Section, a staff section of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS), is a national organization of persons in government and the private sector with professional interests and responsibilities in notary law and the commissioning and administration of notaries.
Our primary goals are:
Improve the function of Notary Public Administrator offices through peer-to-peer collaboration, exchange of ideas and practices, and sharing of informational tools and resources; and
Advance the office of notary public through education and promotion of best practices.
The NPA Section is drafting the “NASS eNotarization Implementation Guide,” to be offered to Notary Public commissioning authorities and other involved parties as a tool for development of overall eNotarization program objectives and related strategies. The “iGuide” is designed to facilitate strategic analysis and decision-making in hopes of advancing adoption of electronic notarization.
