We are a professional organization dedicated to the paralegal profession. We support paralegal/legal assistants by promoting professional development, education, and the Certified Legal Assistants (“CLA”), Certified Paralegal (“CP”) and Advanced Certified Paralegal (“ACP”) examinations. Please contact us concerning membership or for additional information about MPA.
Our February luncheon with current Secretary of State, Honorable Delbert Hosemann gave us some inside information regarding something that directly effects us as paralegals, Notary Public’s in Mississippi. As some of you may already know, we are on the fast track to implement electronic notarization. Electronic Notarization (e-Notarization) is a process by which a notary provides an electronic acknowledgement for an electronic document (Microsoft Word, PDF, etc.). The effect is the same as a notary signing a sheet of paper, but it allows for easier transmittal of the document by email or another electronic source, and enables electronic filing.
Secretary Hoseman expressed concern as to the verification process along with several other concerns. However, he did point out that this is an imminent change we have to make given other states have or are already implementing the e-notarization. The Secretary also asked for some of us to participate in a discussion regarding this implementation. We will follow up with any additional information once received. We thank Secretary Hoseman for sharing with us.
You definitely will not want to miss our March Luncheon with guest speaker Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Mississippi, Justice William L. Waller, Jr. We look forward to hearing from one of our sitting Justices and encourage you to attend.
The March luncheon is Thursday, March 22, 2018, at noon at Capital Towers.
Don’t miss this opportunity, we hope to see you then!
Betty Todd, CP MPA President
