Event Description
The Ohio Society of Notaries is the professional association for Ohio notaries, dedicated to awareness, education, and advocacy for Ohio's 220,000 notaries, and the important role they play in protecting our citizens. We have been THE primary resource for Ohio notary information since 2009. Visit us at 
We are again presenting our popular advanced notary seminar "Beyond the Stamp - Your Role, Responsibilities, and Risks as an Ohio Notary Public" , updated with Ohio's new notary laws. 
This is THE best, longest-running, and most comprehensive Ohio notary training available, and is particularly valuable for LIBRARIANS providing notary services to their patrons as a community service. We have trained hundreds of Ohio librarians statewide.
We are again partnering with the Northeast Ohio Regional Library System to present the class in Canton.

Unlike other notary classes around the state, this is not just a boring regurgitation of Ohio statutes and legalese, by those who have never been in the REAL Ohio notary world.  

It's taught by Roger Rill, President of the Ohio Society of Notaries, with over 45 years of Ohio notary experience. Roger was the co-author and driving force behind passage of the Ohio Notary Public Modernization Act that became effective law in September 2019, and which completely revamped and improved Ohio's notary system. Roger was honored by NNA as a 2019 National Notary Of The Year Special Honoree (see attachment). Learn from the best! 

This is the opportunity to receive the full Ohio training you never had - with the best, and most comprehensive, Ohio notary seminar available; designed for Ohio notaries, by Ohio notaries.

We present this class all around the state, and you'll be surprised at how much you don't know, about what you don't know! Lack of notary knowledge could lead to errors, and potential liability exposure for both you and your library!
