NCRA membership renewals driven by Coach wristlet giveaway

A chance to win a Coach wristlet each week is being attributed in part by NCRA to a record number of membership renewals received in the month of November.

The first winner in November was Joann Bunze, RPR, a freelance deposition reporter from Fuquay-Varina, N.C. Bunze, who began her career in 1996 as a full-time freelance reporter in New York, launched her own agency, Noteworthy Reporting Services in Raleigh, N.C., three years ago. She said she holds membership in NCRA because of the support the Association provides her.

“I also appreciate knowing there’s a place I can go to get up-to-date information on where our industry is going. NCRA has always been there for me to answer questions, to help further my knowledge of my industry, and sometimes just for a good laugh when reading the JCR and finding out that some of these crazy things don’t only happen to me.”

Other winners of a Coach wristlet included Elsie Terada, RPR, from Honolulu, Hawaii who has been a freelance reporter since 1996; Linda Marquette, RPR, a freelance reporter from Encinitas, Calif.; and Sandra Bray, RDR, CRR, from Denver, Colo., a freelance reporter who began her career in 1983. Bray said she renewed her NCRA membership in order to keep her hard-earned certifications current and because she believes the Association protects the profession.
