Remote Notarization: Views of American Land Title Association, Fannie, Freddie, NNA, ASN, and Others

The National Association of Secretaries of State took on an epic task of hosting and moderating the national discussion on remote notarization.  Executive of the association, Leslie Reynolds, did an amazing job of carrying out the task and ensuring an open forum for all.

You can find links to all of the views here.

The American Society of Notaries says exactly what I fear...that if we don't get in the game, the game will find a away around us.
