Those attending the 2014 NCRA Convention & Expo in San Francisco this July 31 – Aug. 3 should make a point of stopping by NCRA’s booths in the Exhibit Hall. Attendees should stop by NCRA’s Membership Booth to learn what the association is doing for the court reporting profession, as well as pick up a fun giveaway. NCRA representatives will be available to answer questions about the latest pushes for closed captioning regulations and laws affecting court reporting on the federal and state level at the Government Relations Booth. In addition, you can get your picture taken with a famous political figure. Don’t miss NCRA’s Store, returning with selected items for this year’s convention, including NCRA’s official convention T-shirts, reference guides, several new items, and the debut of NCRA’s new book, Court Reporting Survival Guide: Student Success Stories. While there, attendees can contribute to NCRA’s next book in the Survival series about maintaining a work-life balance and receive a gift.
NCRA will also be explaining and demonstrating the shift to online proctoring and testing. Visit the NCRA Testing Booth, alongside RealtimeCoach and ProctorU, on the Expo floor (Booths 801/803). The new model of online proctoring and testing will bring many benefits like increased testing opportunities while maintaining a secure test environment for candidates.
NCRA’s Realtime Resource Booth, developed by NCRA’s Realtime Systems Administrator team, will offer attendees the chance to get their realtime questions answered. From streaming to software to troubleshooting challenges, the realtime experts will get reporters set up and running toward the goal of realtime all the time. Attendees can schedule a session for $25.
