The Notary Public Administrators Section was founded in 1998, based on the simple wish to formalize and grow the professional support and collegiality that was then flourishing among state notary public administrators.
As the NPA Section approaches its 20th year, it enjoys a diverse membership that includes not only notary public administrators, but commissioning authorities, professional notary associations and other governmental and private industry entities with an interest in the office of notary public.
Some of the Notary Public Administrators Section’s objectives, then and now, include:
Gathering, exchanging and disseminating facts, information, and ideas relating to notaries public, the administration of commissioning/licensing programs, the regulation of notaries public, and authentication programs
Increasing knowledge of notary law among NPA members and within the general public
Meetings of the NPA Section are held once each calendar year in conjunction with the NASS annual summer conference.
