Renewing early could win you a prize

NCRA members who renew their 2016 memberships early will be automatically entered into drawings that could win them fun prizes. Members who renew in October will be eligible to win a Kindle Fire. Renewals received in November will be eligible to win a $100 Amazon gift card. The winners will also be announced in an upcoming issue of the JCR Weekly newsletter.

Don’t take the chance of missing out on the numerous benefits NCRA offers its members, including the latest in industry and association news delivered through the JCR, JCR Weekly, and JCR.com; a member resource center that offers a wide variety of do-it-yourself public relations tips and tools; compelling and high-quality educational content available through webinars as well as sessions presented at annual convention and other events; and more.

NCRA membership dues also help drive advocacy efforts on behalf of the court reporting and captioning professions through legislative and regulatory representation at the federal and state levels, support legislative boot camps, assist court reporting schools in their quests to deliver high-quality educational programs, and help ensure the continued development of new products and services designed specifically to aid members in achieving professional success. And don’t forget that membership in NCRA also provides money saving opportunities through its affinity relationships with Staples, FedEx, and other vendors.

Renewing is easy and available online at NCRA.org. Members can expect to receive their membership card via email within approximately two weeks of renewing if they have a valid email address and have not previously opted out of Constant Contact email messaging.

Renewing your NCRA membership is also the perfect time to support the work and programs of NCRF, the philanthropic arm of NCRA. NCRF programs include the Veterans History Project, student scholarships and new professionals’ grants, and many other efforts that directly support and benefit the court reporting and captioning professions.
