Nominations for NCRF’s Board of Trustees are now open, and the Foundation is seeking members who want to support its good work by helping to raise funds, develop and implement NCRF programs for which those monies are committed, and further the organization’s mission. NCRF serves as the charitable arm of NCRA and raises funds throughout the year to support an array of programs created to benefit the court reporting community. Among those are a new professional grant, four student scholarships, and the Oral Histories Program.
For many of the past and present members of NCRF’s Board of Trustees, the time and dedication invested to ensure that the Foundation’s work is meaningful translates to an honor rather than an effort. “The National Court Reporters Foundation is often heralded as the ‘feel-good board’ because of the initiatives and programs we support, such as the much-beloved Veterans History Project and the exciting new Corrinne Clark Professionalism Institute,” says Jan Ballman, RPR, CMRS, 2015-2016 NCRF Chair, and owner of Paradigm Reporting & Captioning in Minneapolis. “I can tell you that as a Trustee, it feels equally good to be a part of the wonderful work we do.”
Any NCRA member or member of the public is eligible to serve on NCRF’s Board of Trustees. The deadline for nominations is March 31. Click here for the nomination form and more details.
