A word from our President-Elect
I would like to extend my personal invitation to you to attend the most valuable NCRA event of the year, the upcoming 2014 NCRA Convention & Expo in San Francisco. If you have never attended a convention before or you haven’t been in a few years, I highly recommend that you come and see what the buzz is all about. Throughout this site, you will discover reason upon reason for making your plans now to be a part of the largest gathering of court reporters, captioners, and legal videographers in the world from July 31 through August 3.
As part of Vision 2018, our five-year strategic plan, NCRA has continued and strengthened its commitment to provide members with world-class education and technology training that will keep court reporters ahead of the curve. This year’s Annual Convention & Expo will surpass your expectations in a variety of ways, especially on the educational front. With multiple seminar options and educational tracks, you can customize your learning experience to suit your personal and professional goals.
Even if you’re not the most outgoing person, this event is the best place to connect with other court reporters, agency owners, captioners, legal videographers, industry vendors, scopists, and court reporting students. With an impressive range of networking opportunities, you will meet peers without feeling intimidated, and your network of professional connections and resources will expand many times over in the period of just a few short days.
NCRA’s Convention & Expo is also a celebration of the profession we love! We learn a lot, of course, but we also take the time to recognize the leaders in our profession, connect with our colleagues who will boldly lead us into the future, and pull out the fancy clothes — and heels, in my case! — to celebrate a successful year in the most rewarding profession we could ever imagine. Make sure to join us on the red carpet for a memorable Saturday night that will definitely keep the paparazzi busy!
I am so excited to be able to share with you the details about the Convention & Expo. Page through this site and see what awaits you in San Francisco. Make your plans now to uncover new levels of your professional development, connect with old and new friends alike, and celebrate in a dynamic city.
I can’t wait to see you there!
