Get ready for Stenopalooza

Join your colleagues and peers on May 2 for some fun, learning, networking, and CEUs during NCRA’s Stenopalooza, an online, all-day event. NCRA’s Board of Directors has put together a winning event that offers a schedule with a variety of sessions to choose from, all at an affordable price.

“NCRA is pleased to be offering Stenopalooza, the first online learning event designed to bring CEU opportunities at an affordable price to its members. During this time especially, we want to encourage all members to make the commitment to keep their skills sharp and their networks connected. Stenopalooza aims to do just that,” said NCRA Director Cindy L. Isaacsen, RPR, an official court reporter from Shawnee, Kan., and chair of NCRA’s Stenopalooza Task Force.

The cost to attend the full day with eight webinars is $125 for members and offers .85 CEU credits, compared to a regular cost of $460. A half-day registration, which includes four webinars and offers .45 CEU credits, is priced at $70 for members, compared to a regular price of $240, while the member cost for a single webinar that offers .15 CEU credits is $20, compared to $75. For nonmember pricing, visit the Stenopalooza web page.
