If you want to obtain extra notary education and must ask your boss’ permission, here’s a sample letter that highlights the benefits of notary education. Please adapt it to your own specific circumstances.
Dear _____________, The Pennsylvania Association of Notaries is offering notary education in our area next month on ___________. This one-day seminar includes three hours of education mandated by the state. The morning session, First Time Notary Seminar, covers notarial conduct and responsibilities, proper identification of customers and the official powers of a Pennsylvania notary. The afternoon session, Everyday Notary Challenges, focuses on real world threats to a notary and how to avoid common mistakes that can leave notaries and the companies they work for open to possible litigation or fines. On _______________, the Pennsylvania Association of Notaries is presenting a seminar for notary reappointment. This three-hour course covers the nine steps to notarizing a document, an in-depth look at the most common notarial powers, the difference between affidavits and acknowledgments, complex documents and electronic notarization. An afternoon session, Information Security & Identity Theft, provides detailed instructions on how to detect, deter and defend against identity theft. The First Time Notary and the Reappointment seminars have been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for three hours of CLE credit per seminar for substantive law, practice and procedure. I believe it is important to stay informed of changes that affect notary public law and to be familiar with new notarial forms and procedures. Participating in this seminar will also benefit the company. The knowledge I receive through this seminar will help me avoid common mistakes that could leave me and our company open to possible litigation or fines. Information on the seminar and its cost is attached. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, (your signature)
