Our Leader


Thanks for being a leader with forethought, vision, and determination to ensure that Maryland Notaries Public are expert professionals – The Best of The Best – so much more than just mere “Rubber Stampers” as some may think.

You evolved the concept for Maryland’s Notary Public Day program over the years from periodic informational and educational gatherings, meetings, and forums on local and national news and requirements to what it is today – a one-day business conference including a General Session featuring local and national guest speakers, workshops, and a fantastic Notary Public Fashion Show. 

Notable guest speakers include: Congresswoman Donna Edwards, Maryland Secretary of State Officials, Maryland Land Title Executives, National Notary Association Executives, National Notary Association Notaries of The Year, and professional vendors.

Hundreds of notaries attend each year to learn about current and new notarial developments, issues, concerns, and requirements. We appreciate your dedication, efforts and hard work to ensure that Maryland notaries are equipped with the knowledge and skills to perform their duties accurately, responsibly, and professionally.

Therefore, for the 8th Notary Public Day Program we present you with the infinity necklace which symbolizes intuition, insight, potential to explore, and new beginnings. You are appreciated and we look forward to future Maryland Notary Public Day programs.

Maryland Notaries Public


 Maryland area Notary Public Day program was originally birthed more than 10 years ago as part of Elaine’s vision, goal, and quest to contribute to "Elevating the Office of Notary Public”.  


Thanks to Elaine for making us aware of technology tools and apps into the Notary Profession. Elaine has been using NotaryAct, the electronic journal, since August of of 2013. You paved a way for all Mobile Notaries to learn about  Information Technology (IT) at Prince George's Community Colleges. 


On behalf of Maryland Area Notaries Public, we present you with this small token of our appreciation for your efforts. Wear it with pride in remembrance of your accomplishments. Thanks for bring us along on your journey of "Elevating the Office of the Notary Public".
