Secretary, Federal Trade Commission
Please accept this correspondence as notice of our intent to attend the April 3, 2001 E-sign Public Workshop.
If you would be interested in our services, we would like to participate in one of your panel discussions. While we are neither experts on e-sign (or UETA), nor experts in a technological sense, we believe we can bring to the table some information and advice concerning the various methods of obtaining the signatures to be used in the electronic age, as well as a perspective from the trenches of life wherein the notary public resides.
We would also be willing to offer comment concerning the notary's problems concerning identification of her customer, and non-repudiation of actions before a notary public.
Before and since the implementation of e-sign we have sought to gain a well-rounded perspective of how this legislation would affect the notary public, and the consumer whom she serves. Our approach tends to be down-to-earth, without the shackles of a preconceived notion of the perfect electronic world.
As the nation's first notary association, representing 50,000+ notaries public in the State of Pennsylvania, and having a solid understanding of the notary's position in the other 49 states, we believe that we may be able to present a unique view of the future as it concerns e-sign and the notary public.
For the Association,
