Special Guest

Maricopa County Recorder, Helen Purcell 

I have not received many questions yet.  Please email me your questions for the Maricopa County Recorder.

(I’d appreciate it if you could cite a statutory or authoritative reference or example with your question.)

Helen Purcell will be joining us to discuss all aspects of recording documents in Maricopa County Recorder’s Office.  Helen Purcell will also give us a brief overview of her official capacity as it relates to voting as we’ve just hosted the Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett who handles the same capacity for the state.I will focus my questions around document integrity, database integrity, policies vs. statutes and accommodation differences between documents offered by individuals and corporations.  Please let me know what else you’d like to ask.

Special guest protocol

The agenda for a special guest meeting is that we will ask for a brief Bio / Official Capacity Overview followed by overview of their position as it relates to foreclosures.  Once that is complete, I will be presenting the questions that have been submitted to me via email.  This will be followed by an open question and answer period as time permits.  This is how the prior meets have been structured and it works well.

I have one request of attendees.  It has to do with the acceptance of silence.  If there is a period of silence, it is not an opportunity to blurt out a comment or question to take the guest in a different direction.  I have carefully arranged your submitted questions in a specific order to create valid learning experience and directed communication with the guest.  By diverting the guest you are diminishing the impact of both of these goals.  The use of silence is intended to allow the guest an opportunity to be accountable to the topic at hand.  Please be aware of your relationship to silence and understand that it is one of the most effective communication tools.(If you’d like to study the impact of silence, take some time and watch the master, Bill Cosby!

Notary Trade Group: Foreclosure Fraud Crisis Highlights Need For Legal, Trusted, Ethical Notarizations

Posted: 21 Apr 2012 09:07 PM PDT

The National Notary Association recently announced:

§ With the foreclosure ‘robo-signing’ crisis and the National Mortgage Settlement sending shockwaves through America’s mortgage industry, three nationally prominent Secretaries of State will convene a special Keynote Panel at the National Notary Association’s 34th Annual Conference this June to discuss the growing demand for trusted, legal notarizations, and what Notaries need to do to increase public protections and reduce liability risks.

§ Secretaries of State Elaine Marshall of North Carolina, Beth Chapman of Alabama, and Ken Bennett of Arizona are at the forefront of developments transforming the role of Notaries Public. Their insights will be a highlight of Conference 2012 — especially in light of mounting nationwide concerns over notarial compliance and risk management.

§ We are pleased that these three influential Secretaries — all of whom are among the top minds in notarial issues — will join us to address the nation’s Notaries and their employers during this critical time,” said NNA President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas A. Heymann.

§ The foreclosure crisis put the spotlight squarely on the high value of legal and ethical notarizations. These Secretaries will provide their perspectives on what needs to be done to strengthen the notarial process and avoid these types of financial crises.”
