Patsy Jacoy, RPR, CRR, a freelancer reporter with YOM Reporting & Video in Seattle, Wash., was the winner of a $100 Amazon gift card for renewing her 2016 NCRA membership early. Jacoy was randomly chosen from a large number of other NCRA members who renewed for 2016 as part of the Association’s early membership renewal drive.
Jacoby, who has worked as a court reporter for 30 years, said she rarely wins anything, so receiving the gift card was a nice surprise.
“I choose to continue to belong to NCRA to stay abreast with the latest developments in the court reporting field and also to support the court reporting profession,” she said.
“I see NCRA as a vital piece to keeping court reporters employed for many years to come, despite the attempts by others to take our place,” she added.
It’s not too late to renew for 2016 and ensure your membership benefits continue into the new year. Renew before the end of December and don’t miss a single benefit, including access to the latest news through the JCR, the JCR Weekly, and TheJCR.com. Other membership benefits include discounts on insurance plans, purchases at Staples, and shipping fees by FedEx.
Renewing is easy and available online at NCRA.org/renew. 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.
