One To Watch
H.R. 3962, the "SECURE Act" could be an issue for notaries nationwide. CLIN - The California League of Independent Notaries has a short and easily understood article on their site regarding the concerns. Some of those concern consumer protections, document security, and mandates all states take up RON/RIN contrary to many states' current statutes.

Come to an informal meet up on the third Thursday of the month from 12:30 to 1:30. Grab some lunch, connect with other notaries, exchange info, get the inside scoop on side hustles etc.
The Meetings could be just a single other notary, perfect for those in depth conversations. Or, meetings could be a couple of tables full of outgoing small business like-minded notaries and LSA's to discuss the most recent changes, laws, funny occurrences on the job etc.
