Announcing: AssureSign Electronic Signature Tool!
We are pleased to announce our partnership with AssureSign to collect your electronic signature for verifying your NIE subscription. Forms will be sent out bi-annually per our internal auditing guidelines. This new process will make signing, collecting and confirming your subscription more efficient both for you and for us! We will begin sending out the forms later this month and next month via email.
Please note that the document will come from Sheila Shah with a subject line such as, “A document from [Property Name] is available for you to sign”. Please be sure to open the email, review and sign the form as soon as possible. Again, this information is required for our internal audit so we can continue providing our services to teachers and students at no charge.
