MBA Remote Notary Webinar

Tuesday, April  6, 2021 @ 2 pm

Last summer the Mississippi Legislature enacted HB 1156 which adopts several key provisions of the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts and authorizes electronic notarial acts in the State. The Secretary of State was charged with promulgating rules to implement the provisions of the Bill by July 1, 2021. This presentation will cover what banks can expect when HB 1156 goes into effect.
