Not too late to attend NCRA’s 2014 Legal Video Conference

On-site registration is available for legal videographers of all levels who want to attend NCRA’s 2014 Legal Video Conference in Las Vegas, being held Oct. 17- 19. Join the more than 100 professionals already registered to attend the largest annual event designed specifically for this segment of the legal services industry. As always, the conference will offer several levels of continuing education programs, as well as certification testing for aspiring legal videographers.

The two-day conference will feature the CLVS Seminar, which is part of the certification requirements for CLVS candidates. For current CLVSs earning continuing education units, the schedule is packed with sessions that offer advanced training led by some of the best faculty in the profession, as well as representatives of legal service providers and vendors.

This year’s two-day CLVS Seminar for CLVS candidates includes an introduction to the legal video profession that will address the uses of video in the legal system, the duties of legal videographers, an overview of the types of video systems available, and video and audio equipment, video signals, equipment acquisition and management, and more. There will also be hands-on workshops to allow attendees to work directly with video and audio equipment.

“I am currently in training to take over the videographer position at my court reporting firm in Dallas, Texas, and I hope to take away some ideas for new technology and equipment from the conference,” said Eleanor Harris. “I’m anxious for the hands-on workshop especially since I am a beginning videographer.”

Other highlights of this year’s event include a Saturday Night Networking Reception and exhibitor booths where attendees will be able to learn first-hand about the latest in new products and technologies.

“Having the NCRA training and CLVS certification has always mattered to me and to my clients. They see the various certifications I’ve earned from the NCRA and, from that, trust that I’ll do quality work for them,” said Carla Letellier, RPR, from Buffalo, Ill.

“This year, I’m looking to not only sharpen my existing skills, but also become CLVS certified to provide new services to my clients. I’m expecting to come away from this conference with the tools and guidance needed to be a successful legal videographer,” added Letellier, who is President of Lake-Cook Reporting in Bannockburn, Ill.

Although online registration for the 2104 NCRA Legal Video Conference is closed, those still interested in attending can sign up on-site in Las Vegas. The conference is being held at the Westin Las Vegas Hotel, Casino & Spa. For room information, call the hotel at 866-837-4215.
