New members continued to join NCRA in record numbers in May 2015, driven in part by the chance to win a Kindle Fire. Sandra K. Smith, a captioner and participating NCRA member from Spring Grove, Ill., was randomly chosen from those who joined during the month to receive a new Kindle Fire.
Smith, who is a captioner with the National Captioning Institute, has worked in the court reporting field for 29 years, including as an official and a freelance reporter.
“I decided to reinstate my membership in NCRA because I feel I need to be more proactive in the field, and I wanted to take the new Certified Realtime Captioner exam,” Smith said. “I’ll also be attending the annual convention in New York City this year.”
NCRA will continue its new membership recruitment drive in June and will pick one final winner at the end of the month to receive a new Kindle Fire. To join NCRA and become eligible for a Kindle Fire drawing, visit NCRA.org/membership.
