In less than two weeks, NCRA’s 2015 Court Reporting & Captioning Week will kick off, and this year there are double the resources available to help celebrate at the NCRA.org and crTakeNote.com websites. Across the nation and Canada, court reporters, captioners, firms, state associations, and court reporting schools will host a variety of activities to help showcase the profession and to raise public awareness of the growing number of career opportunities the field has to offer.
In addition to press release templates, media pitches, and more available at NCRA’s Court Reporting & Captioning Week resources page, additional materials can be found at crTakeNote.com, such as a summary of the court reporting profession, a PowerPoint presentation, logos, ads, web banners, and general marketing elements.
The Take Note site also features information for parents and school counselors about the profession as well as information about court reporting schools. State court reporting associations and schools can also take advantage of matching funds to assist them with advertising and other marketing costs.
A number of state court reporting associations have already announced plans to celebrate the week. One organization set to celebrate is the Hawaii Court Reporters and Captioners Association, which will host a luncheon featuring NCRA President Sarah Nageotte, RDR, CRR, CBC, who will spotlight the Association’s Take Note Campaign.
The Wisconsin Court Reporters Association has reported that Gov. Scott Walker has already proclaimed Feb. 15-21, 2015, as Wisconsin Court Reporting & Captioning Week, and the New York State Court Reporters Association has announced plans to host a meet-and-greet event at the Nassau County Bar Association. The state association also plans to hold a Realtime Training Day at no cost during the week.
