NEWS / Conference 2008: Learn How To Avoid Costly Mistakes

By NNA Staff
May 21, 2008

Notaries who want to be sure to avoid mistakes, detect fraud or learn how to spot and refuse improper requests will get all the training they need at the NNA’s 30th Annual Conference.

The Conference, which commences May 27-30 in New Orleans, Louisiana, has four career development certificate tracks that encompass 20 workshops. Completing three workshops within any one track, along with a visit to the eNotarization Lab, earns a delegate a certificate. Each class is taught by a certified expert, and all workshops are included with full Conference Registration.

The Notary Best Practices Certificate Track offers a workshop in “Recognizing and Preventing Costly Missteps.” Among its highlights is the study of liability and misconduct through actual court cases.

The workshop “Best Practices for Everyday Notarial Acts” will help delegates perform flawless acknowledgments and jurats. Sure-fire tips for identifying signers, plus practical steps to protect Notaries from common problems will also be part of that workshop. Other workshops in the Best Practices track included the “Top Skills for Turning Away Improper Requests,” and “Make Best Practices Excellence Your `Brand.’”

Also, don’t forget that Conference will also feature the latest in eNotarization and new career opportunities with the Trusted Enrollment Agent™ Program. The Notary event of the year is only a few days away, so if you haven’t registered, visit NationalNotary.org/Conf2008 as soon as you can so you don’t miss out.

Conference Fun Fact: Creoles and Cajuns

As a culture, the New Orleans Creoles were descended from the French and were the first generation to be born in the American Colonies. Under New Orleans’ French, Spanish and American rule, Creole society was made up of West Africans, slaves, free slaves and indentured servants, along with French aristocrats, merchants, soldiers and nuns. The term is derived from the Spanish word criollo, which distinguished a person born in the Colonies from an immigrant or an imported slave. Today, people of various mixtures of French, Spanish, West Indian and African ancestry refer to themselves as Creoles.

Cajuns are descended from a group of Catholic, French-speaking trappers and farmers who were exiled from Nova Scotia, Canada, by the ruling class of English Protestants in 1755. The Cajuns brought their music and cuisine to New Orleans after they were exiled from Canada. Today, more than one million people of Cajun descent live in Louisiana.
