NCRA and NCRF participate in #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday NCRA members and staff are all part of the service economy. NCRA members are keepers of the record, and NCRA staff serves its members. The profession has service in its blood, so NCRA is encouraging all members and staff to take part in #GivingTuesday on Dec. 2.

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday, an annual day of giving following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, was created in 2011 to empower a new community of philanthropists. #GivingTuesday is based on the concept that anyone, anywhere, can be a philanthropist. Participants don’t have to be billionaires to participate, and they don’t have to give funds. Giving can mean money, time, advocacy, or education.

On Dec. 2, NCRA are members encouraged to participate on #GivingTuesday

1. Donate to NCRF by calling 800-272-6272.

NCRF raises funds throughout the year to support programs created to benefit the greater court reporting community. NCRF also awards four scholarships and grants to court reporting achievers each year.

2. Become a virtual mentor by completing this form.

NCRA is committed to excellence both in the court reporting profession and in the next generation of court reporters. To this end, the Virtual Mentor Program is one way to bring court reporters and students together, so students can get the guidance and encouragement they need and today’s court reporters can nurture the future of court reporting.

3. Download brochures and posters.

Put up posters at local high schools and community colleges. Do a presentation about becoming a court reporter for high school students, parents, and/or school counselors. Talk to a neighbor or friend about court reporting careers.
