BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP

Our goal is for our association to engage Notaries to improve their education and to develop networking to share resources as a group.  Membership in the Professional Civil Law Notaries Association is your declaration that you want to be a part of a group of professionals striving for higher standards.  Membership has it's benefits!

  • NETWORKING:
    As a member of PCLNA, you have a network to call upon for assistance and the opportunity to participate in voluntary continuing education that ensures your success as a professional.  These meetings, held monthly, include both educational, networking and social times, to allow you to interact with other Notaries in our city.

  • ONLINE MEMBERS DIRECTORY
    Your listing in our online members directory is included with your membership and remains active for as long as your membership is active.  Members can choose whether or not to be in the public directory on this website, but for those that choose to be listed, this is a tool for the public to locate a notary near them and we expect your notary business to increase as a result of being listed in the public directory.  Each member has their own login and password and can maintain their own listing directly. 

  • PRIVATE YAHOO DISCUSSION GROUP
    Members have the option to participate in a private, Member's Only Yahoo discussion group where members share ideas, ask questions and learn from one another. This is an extension of the networking opportunities that are available and provide our out of town members the ability to participate as well.  Send an email to pclna-subscribe@yahoogroups.com to join our private email group.

  • NOTARY LAW UPDATES:
    Stay informed on current and changing legislature affecting notaries.  Hundreds of laws are passed each session and it can be overwhelming for an individual person to keep track of all the changes, but as a group we have had great success.  You can be a part of this with your membership and assist in guarding the Notary heritage regarding legislature directly affecting the regulation of the Civil Law Notary.

  • TRAINING AND REFERENCE MATERIALS
    Although we expect some form of mandatory continuing education act to be passed at some point, currently it is entirely up the each notary to maintain their own training.  It's unprofessional and dangerous to act as a notary about matters that you have limited or no knowledge and the goal of our association s to provide training and reference materials. Each monthly meeting typically offers a training speaker that provides a learning experience beyond what you might find on your own.  Our speakers have specific knowledge and experience in their subject matter. 

  • FORM LIBRARY ONLINE:
    Access to our form library online. Your membership entitles you to login and download forms from any computer connected to the internet in word format.  Modify and change them as you need.  All you need is your member's login to access the Form Library.

  • PROFESSIONAL CODE OF ETHICS AND STANDARDS
    As a member of the PCLNA, you've agreed to conduct your notary transactions under a higher standard and that further legitimizes your work as a notary.  Membership means something!

  • MARKETING ADVANTAGES
    Our website has a high placement in the Google search results when someone seeks to find a notary public in Louisiana.  With improvements and optimization, we expect this to climb even higher and members that are included in the online member's directory can expect to have greater marketing placements as a result of their membership.  Our "FIND A NOTARY" search form provides the web visitor with a way to find a notary close to them.
