The Board of Directors represents the wide diversity of the NCRA membership through its nomination and election of Officers and Directors. This diversity of perspective, background, and thought includes both the variety of professions members engage in – captioner, educator, firm owner, freelancer, and official – and the cultural, socioeconomic, race, gender, and other differences that give us our unique perspectives.

NCRA is the premier organization representing the court reporting and captioning professions. Its Directors and Officers work together to steer the organization toward a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as providing strategic guidance to ensure NCRA provides the necessary resources for success.
