A Message from the President

November 27, 2015

As President of the World Organisation of Notaries, I would like
to take this opportunity, on behalf of myself and the Executive of W.O.N.,
to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year in 2016.

I know I speak on behalf of our membership that Notarial work in our various member jurisdictions has been busier than ever. The role and importance of
Notaries in the global economy are ever increasing as the world looks to Notaries as trusted individuals qualified to assist clients in a wide variety of
legal transactions.

The World Organisation of Notaries is hosting its second conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on May 6, 7, 8, 2016—only 6 months away.

We here in Vancouver are looking forward to welcoming you to “Notaries in the Global Economy.” The lineup of speakers and topics promises
to be educational, entertaining, and relevant to all Notaries who attend and we will enjoy meeting up with old and new colleagues.

The timing for international Notaries to venture to Vancouver could not be better. Because the Canadian dollar is at a near-record low, savings can range
from 40 percent for the US and European Notary to more than 100 percent for the English Notary.

And, while gaining credits for CPD in your respective jurisdiction, you will see what a truly wonderful city Vancouver is!

If you require more information, please email me at kmcd@portal.ca
or Wayne Braid at gwb@society.notaries.bc.ca.

We will be happy to answer your queries.

See you in May!

Ken Sherk
