Subject: Steering Committee Nomination

The following is posted on behalf of John Messing:


I would like to introduce and nominate Marc Aronson to the position of at-large member of the LegalXML Steering Committee.


Marc has been an invaluable member of the eNotary TC and brings vast notarial and land records experience to LegalXML.


Mr. Aronson is President of the Pennsylvania Association of Notaries (PAN), which was founded in 1972, with nearly 50,000 members today.

He instructs members of the American Institute of Banking, Pennsylvania Land Title Association, International Association of Clerks, Recorders, Election Officials and Treasurers, Mortgage Bankers Association and others on notary functions. He also serves as President of the United States Notary Association (USNA), serving all 50 states and the District of Columbia.


He is an active long-time member of Property Records Industry Association (PRIA), where he serves as the private sector Co-Chair of the PRIA membership-marketing committee and convention committee; participant on the governance committee, charged with maintaining the PRIA by-laws.  He was the private sector co-chair of a PRIA work group responsible for eNotarization and eRecording, and served on the American Bar Association's eTrust subcommittee that created the eNotary White Paper.


Mr. Aronson has also been involved with the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO) and is a member and advisor on the development of two important guides, the MISMO eMortgage Closing Guide and eMortgage Guide.


He also is a participant in the organization known as Standards and Procedures for Electronic Records and Signatures. (SPeRS).


Within the Enotary TC, he acts as an informal notary procedures and notary law advisor.


He is a member of the National Association of Secretaries of State

(NASS) Notary Public Administrators (NPA) Committee. At the 2006 NASS Conference he spoke to the NPA Committee on the status of the eNotarization Initiative in Pennsylvania.


In 2003 Mr. Aronson was the only American notary, and notary association representative, present at the Special Commission of the Hague Conference on Private  International Law at The Hague, The Netherlands.

This conference concentrated on electronic commerce, electronic notarization and the potential problems of authenticating electronically notarized documents sent from one country to another.

For two years, Mr. Aronson was an active participant as an official observer of a drafting committee of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL). The resultant work, entitled the Uniform Real Property Electronic Recording Act (URPERA) has been adopted by a number of states, numbers of which are steadily increasing. He also was the driving force behind the effort to form a drafting committee to consider a rewrite of the 1982 Uniform Law on Notarial Acts (ULONA). This committee expects to have its' first conference call in early 2008.


I think Marc Aronson brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Steering Committee.
