New student memberships free for rest of 2019

NCRA is offering free student memberships to new members for the remainder of 2019. Interested students should apply on the NCRA website or contact with inquiries.

Student member Madeline Dub said she decided to become a member mainly because her mother encouraged her. She is currently a student at West Valley College in Saratoga, Calif.

When asked about her motivation, Dub said of her mother, “She’s a working reporter and is steadfastly involved and updated when it comes to her career, which is something I hope to mirror as a professional one day.”

“The main benefit of NCRA membership for me personally is confidence,” Dub continued. “One of my biggest obstacles as a student is picturing myself as a working reporter. From networking with students and reporters at seminars to staying current with technology and trends in the industry, I have been able to gain a more professional mindset, which in turn has made me a more confident student. Membership has allowed me to feel like a part of the community that’ll be with me my whole career, even during my education.”

Some of the benefits of being a student member of NCRA are:

  • Eligibility for the CASE scholarship
  • Savings on testing prices by paying the member rate
  • Mentors and resources that support the completion of school
  • Savings on Convention prices (great networking!)
  • Two introductory certifications (RPR and CRC) that you can start while still in school
  • Subscription to the JCR magazine and JCR Weekly
  • Members-only discounts on office supplies and more through the NCRA Member Savings Program
  • Members-only discounted group insurance programs
  • Special student pricing to networking and educational events at the NCRA Convention & Expo
