This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (ESIGN) Act and members of the Electronic Signature and Records Association (ESRA), the premier trade association representing electronic signature adopters and providers, played a key role in its enactment.
During a recent conference in New York, members reflected on what has been accomplished since the passage of this law in 2000 and what the future of eSignatures and records holds.
