NCRA member Early Langley, RMR, a freelance court reporter from Danville, Calif., has been appointed to serve a two-year term as Chair of the National Court Reporters Foundation (NCRF) Board of Trustees.
Langley is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of California Berkeley, who also holds NCRA’s Realtime Systems Administrator certificate.
“Chairing NCRF? It means so much to me; from student scholarships, the new Career Launcher program, and the Angels donor program to the Veterans History Project. Through the Veterans History Project, the memory of my Uncle Earl (I was named after him), Pvt. First Class Earl K. Zimpfer, killed in combat in WWII, will now reside in two places: The Library of Congress and the MacArthur Memorial Museum. I am honored,” Langley said.
At the national level, Langley serves as a member of the NCRA Education Content Committee and is a past member of the Association’s Ethics First Committee. She is also a member of the Corrine Clark Oversight Committee.
As past president of the California Court Reporters Association, she oversaw one of the largest associations of diverse court reporters in the country. During her tenure, California witnessed a massive restructuring of official reporters. For the first time, freelancers, hired privately, were tasked with covering trials.
She has published articles in many California Bar Association journals and the JCR, the three most notable of which are: The Helter Skelter Trial Memoir, Dollars for Depos, and Lost in Digital Translation.
She has given numerous seminars, the latest of which include a series entitled The Fluctuant Freelancer 1.0 and 2.0.
Currently she reports complex, high-profile trials webcast by CVN. The cases require multiple realtime hookups.
