Our Story

About Us

As the online notary industry continues its digital journey, there is an increasing demand for certified and experienced remote online notaries (“RON”) across the State of Florida. Given all the recent, and continuing changes in RON laws and regulations, it is also increasingly difficult to navigate the remote notarization terrain. Since the passing of the law permitting RON in Florida, we have researched for weeks at a time the different laws, protocols, do’s and don’ts, of the industry, including the best online platforms to complete every kind of remote notarization.

Realizing the urgent need for a better understanding of all this information, we decided to embark on a journey to assist other remote online notaries, real estate, title professionals and lenders understand this new notarial act “at the touch of a button.”  The Florida Remote Online Notary Association (“FRONA”), the first of its kind, was created and founded by Madelin Espino.  Our mission is to provide comprehensive resources, including this web page, where notaries from all states can blog and learn about Florida RON, and all its criteria, including the very latest changes in the law, and latest articles explaining those changes and the rapidly expanding world of RON.

As with anything in life, with more knowledge comes better understanding.  As a member of FRONA, our notaries will receive many benefits.  They will be able to have their questions answered by top local and national RON professionals. Our members will be invited to participate in regular webinars, seminars, educational updates and information, as well as offered the ability to network either virtually or in person at regular events. Nothing would bring us greater satisfaction than to know FRONA has made a difference for our members, and for our industry.

Please join us in pioneering this amazing undertaking that will change the face of remote online notarization forever by becoming a charter member of FRONA today, or by becoming a sponsor on this page.  Just fill out the information below and you will be personally welcomed by email and telephone by a member.

We look forward to your support and membership throughout our continuing digital journey.
