NC Register of Deeds Conference in Fayetteville!

The NCARD conference was in full swing today. The highlight of the day came in the afternoon with the Electronic Notarization and Electronic Recording in NC Presentation.

The panelists included: Sec. of State Elaine Marshall; Brunswick County ROD Robert Robinson- chair of E-Notary Commission; Kathy Dils, VP Loan Services with BB&T and chair of E-Recording Council; Margaret Lawson- Sr. VP at First Citizens Bank; Johnston County ROD Craig Olive; and vendors Aptitude Solutions and Electronic Document Logistics.

Both E-Notary and E-Recording Councils will be conducting 45 day public comment periods on their recommendations. Harnett and Johnston counties will be two of the first pilot counties. E-notary trainings through the NC Secretary of State will begin in October as well.

As a work in progress, it is important to honor the work of all those who have been involved with this groundbreaking process in technology and e-filing in NC. At the same time, many Registers are anxiously awaiting the standards; dialogue with potential users from the property records industry; and statutory issues such as NC being a "race state".

I'm very clear we have alot of work to do at the state and local levels and the next six months are crucial in moving forward.
