NCRA announces keynote speaker and schedule for 2023 Conference & Expo

The full schedule for the 2023 NCRA Conference & Expo in Houston, Texas, has been announced as well as the keynote speaker. Attendees will be hearing from Dennis M. Holmgren, a seasoned Dallas-based trial attorney who maintains active transactional and litigation practices and whose expertise encompasses a wide range of areas. View the full schedule of sessions and events here.

Invited by incoming NCRA President Kristin M. Anderson, RPR, this year’s keynote speaker will share the ramifications of trial courts opting for digital reporting methods instead of using a certified shorthand reporter. With his extensive background and firsthand experience, Holmgren will delve into the perils of digital reporting and reveal strategies that court reporters can use to tackle these challenges head-on in their own jurisdictions.

Interested attendees are encouraged to take advantage of Early Bird registration rates by signing up by May 15 and making reservations for the July 27-30 event at the Hyatt Regency Houston Downtown.

This year’s Conference theme is Make Every Connection Matter – something that can certainly happen with the schedule jammed-packed full of informative, fun, and engaging events planned with our Welcome Reception, sessions, awards ceremony, and even a blow-out celebration party for the year ahead to cap off this four-day event. And for the first time in years, NCRA will be holding in-person Skills Testing. Registration for testing opens May 8.

Take some time to look over the full schedule of educational seminars, networking events, and add-on sessions like Firm Owners Focus, Speed and Realtime Contests, Vendor Training Workshops, and Captioning and Realtime Boot Camps.

Be part of the annual national event that brings together court reporting, captioning, and legal videography professionals from around the world. Take advantage of a wide array of sessions from leading experts and panelists across the profession and beyond who will provide valuable insights on thought-provoking topics that engage, teach, and enlighten in ways that only the annual NCRA’s Conference & Expo can offer.
