Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin will be at the Batesville Chamber of Commerce on Thursday March 22, at 3:15 pm to meet with Chamber members and hear any concerns or comments they might have.
The Secretary of State’s office works closely with Chambers of Commerce through its Business and Commercial Services Division which provides a wide range of services to individuals and companies who conduct business within Arkansas, whether they’re based inside the state or elsewhere. The BCS division combines several departments under one convenient umbrella to streamline customer service. BCS is Arkansas’s starting point for people wishing to transact business in the state. Consumers can search for an available name for their company as well as file appropriate documents for their business. The BCS Division also records trademarks, files notary public certifications, issues Authentication of Documents and Apostilles, and records Uniform Commercial Code Filings.
