It’s a great time to watch fan favorite Connect sessions

Five of the fan favorite sessions from NCRA Connect Virtual 2020 conference are available as e-sessions for purchase, offering a great opportunity to earn CEUs to anyone who needs to maintain certifications or just upgrade the skills they need to continue working in this new era.

If you are interested in gadgets, don’t miss Reporters and Gadgets and Apps — Oh, My! presented by Lynette Mueller, RDR, CRR, a freelancer in Memphis, Tenn.

“Want to fill your need to embrace gadgets and apps and ease them into your workflow?” Mueller said. “My Connect Virtual webinar may be just what you’re looking for! I’m so honored that this session is a fan favorite and being offered to court reporters who couldn’t attend the convention this year!”

Mueller said she is careful about which apps and gadgets make her list.

“The criteria must be that they are unique and must do something that cannot be done with a different app or gadget or it does it better and more efficiently and, also, it must help with my court reporting workflow,” she said. “This learning session covers so many awesome recommendations — from remote depositions to microphones to headphones and many more!”

Watch Mueller’s Instagram account, @omegareporting, for details about a new contest she is running related to her presentation. It ends Nov. 14.

Another session features Rene White Moarefi, RPR, CRR, a freelancer in Houston, Texas, who presented about marking exhibits. She said, “You will learn how to confidently mark exhibits electronically with ease!”

The cost for each session is $55 for members and $79 for nonmembers. Each of the sessions are worth 0.1 CEU.
