NASS Remote Notarization Task Force Members

Announced in April 2016, the NASS Remote Notarization Task Force is dedicated to promoting a greater understanding of the issues and policies surrounding remote/video notarizations amongst states. The task force is reviewing technologies that facilitate remote notarizations, tracking state activity and developing possible proposals for NASS consideration.

Membership is open to Secretaries of State and members of the Notary Public Administrators (NPA) Section. NASS Corporate Affiliates are providing input and advice on technologies, training and trends.
