Informed Notaries of Maine Annual Education Conference

February 10, 2016

Hooray!! It’s time for Informed Notaries of Maine Annual Education Conference.  This year’s event will be held at the Double Tree Hotel in Portland, Maine and will be a phenomenal event attended by 200 Notaries Public from across the State.  For the first time ever, we will offer three training tracks in the afternoon for registrants to pick from.  Choose between the workplace track, the wedding track or the mobile notary track (or sample a little of them all).  The agenda is listed below and a registration form is attached.  Visit informednotariesofmaine.org for an online registration form.  Again this year the fees for attendance have remained the same…a real bargain for both the seasoned Notary Public that wants a refresher, the Notary that wants to network and for new Notaries Public that have not ever attended a formal training event.  Cathy Beaudoin and Becky Albair from the Secretary of State’s Office are two of our featured speakers and making a return appearance is the always entertaining Gwen Cole, the wedding nurse.  Breakfast, lunch and snacks are included and we will have new and returning vendors to shop at during breaks.  Don’t delay in registering, this event will sell out quickly.
