New Notary Guide Available

This just in from the Oregon Secretary of State’s office:

We are pleased to announce the 2015 Notary Public Guide is now available from the Secretary of State’s website.

This free publication has been updated with new material, including information about advertising as a notary, preventing financial exploitation of the elderly, and notario publico fraud. The publication may be viewed online, downloaded, or printed from your printer, and has links to many other resources, as well. It includes a Good Practices review page and sample certificate blanks you can copy or download and printout.

While you’re on our website, don’t forget to check out our Training page.  The ONE online tutorial has been revamped to be even more user-friendly, and live presentations are scheduled throughout 2015. Anyone can take the training and, in fact, most notaries find the refresher very helpful. Look for a seminar near you!
