Notary Members Take Notice

Attention Members:

Please excuse the delay in my post. I've been extremely busy lately and haven't had the time to blog.

A motion was made by Troy a month or two ago about proposed changes concerning the notaries public of this Network. (Scroll down and read his proposal).

Our members have voted to accept his policy change. Therefore, the old text reads (pg. 73 of the Massachusetts Notary Public & Legal Support Network's manual):

"Any commissioned Massachusetts Notary Public may become a member of this Network once their status is confirmed by the Governor's Council. However, a Notary may be denied membership if their commission has any valid complaints on file with the Commonwealth. . . What constitutes a “valid” complaint will be at the discretion of the Founder. . ."

and shall be changed to:

"A commissioned Notary Public, pursuant to MGL c. 222 s. 1, is eligible for membership in this Network if the Notary works in the legal field and has at least 1.5 years of experience as a practicing Notary Public. Otherwise, for all other Notaries Public not working in the legal field, the Notary must demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the Founder, that he/she is in full compliance with Executive Order 455 (04-04). If the Founder determines that the Notary Public has demonstrated compliance, a Certificate of Membership shall be issued in accordance with our policy."

The new policy became active on the 1st of February 2008. If you have any questions or concerns about the change, feel free to email me directly.
