When I try to register for NCRA Connect, it is bringing me to my profile. What should I do?

Make sure you are logged out of the NCRA website before you start to register. Look for a button in the top right of the web page or the logout under the “Welcome” at the top of the page. Once you start to register for NCRA Connect, the registration page will redirect you a login page. When it does prompt you, use your NCRA ID number and password to log in.

Can I get a ticket to see the General Session with Amy Henry?

The General Session with Keynote is included in both the Full Registration and Half Registration. You cannot purchase a ticket a la carte.

Can I get a discount on registration for NCRA Connect if I am a student?

NCRA offers a considerable discount for student registrations. NCRA Connect full registration is $325; student registration is $60. Along with NCRA’s subsidies for students, many NCRA members support students with individual sponsorship donations upon registration, which enables NCRA to provide the discounted rate.

Is there a sponsorship program for student registrations?

NCRA members have the opportunity to support the students by including an additional donation with their NCRA Connect registration. These sponsorship dollars go toward the cost of the student registration that enables NCRA to provide students a discounted rate.

If I only want to attend the Learning sessions without the social events, do I need to register for the full package?

You may register for either the Full or Half Registration package for access to CEU sessions. Social events are included with both packages.

I paid for a half registration. Can I upgrade to full registration before or on the day of the conference?

To upgrade your package, please call 1-800-272-6272 by Aug. 6 at 5 p.m. (Eastern) to make  your payment. Please provide your name and the email address you used to register. Please attend all 16 sessions by Aug. 25 at midnight (Eastern).

Will there be an Annual Business meeting and how can I register?

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the decision to cancel the NCRA Conference & Expo in Orlando, Fla., the Board of Directors has voted to dispense with the Annual Business Meeting and instead hold a virtual Board of Directors meeting on Aug. 6, 9 a.m.–5 p.m (Eastern). All Members are invited to attend the Board meeting and can register here.

I’m interested in the National Congress of State Associations events. What is happening with the NCSA Reception and Meeting?

While we will not be hosting a reception, the annual NCSA meeting for 2020 has not been canceled and will be held via Zoom separately from the 2020 NCRA Virtual Conference. If you believe that you were supposed to be included in the meeting and did not receive an invitation, please contact NCRA Director of Government Relations Jocelynn Moore at jmoore@ncra.org.

What forms of payment do you accept?

NCRA accepts AMEX, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover Cards. To pay by credit card, select the "Check Out" button. You also have the option to pay via check or purchase order. All checks must be received no later than Aug. 1 and should include your NCRA Member ID or Account number and the Registration type: Full or Half Package. All checks must be sent to National Court Reporters Association, 12030 Sunrise Drive, Suite 400, Reston, VA, 20191 by August 1st to be registered for the NCRA Connect Virtual 2020.

  • You must take the survey for each session
When will my credits show on my transcript?

Event access


What do I do after I have registered for the virtual event?

A few days before the NCRA Connect Virtual 2020 event, you should receive an email from NCRA (registrations@bizzabo.com) with a unique link to access the virtual event platform.

How do I navigate and use the virtual event platform?

Please review the NCRA Connect Virtual Toolkit for instructions on how to access and navigate the virtual platform.

My question is not here. Who do I contact?
For assistance contact: 
If you haven’t attended an NCRA convention for a while, try it this year virtually! Remember what it’s like to learn new things and network with your colleagues at a lesser expense. For students, take advantage of attending a national conference from home and learn about your future profession.
