“Court Reporting & Captioning Week is one of the best celebrations of the year for our profession,” said NCRA President Kristin M. Anderson, M.A., RPR, FCRR, an official court reporter from Denton, Texas.

“I am encouraging everyone to participate in the 2024 event so that collectively we can let the world know about this hidden gem of a profession and the vast opportunities it offers, no matter whether steno is being used to capture the official record or provide access to vital information, entertainment, education, or more, or to someone who is deaf or hard of hearing,” she added.

As part of this year’s celebration, NCRA’s Communications Team will be distributing a series of press releases and media advisories that showcase the history of stenographic court reporting and how far the profession has come in conjunction with the Association’s 125th Anniversary. If you have a story you would like to share about the state of the profession and how far it’s come, please send your ideas or articles to And remember, please share with us how you plan to showcase the profession so that we can spread the celebration throughout the community by including the hashtag #CRCW2024 on your social media posts. “Participation can be as simple as issuing a press release announcing the week to your local media outlets or as big as taking part in a career fair at a local high school, showcasing what steno is and can do at your state or local courthouse, assisting a veteran who might suffer from hearing loss with sharing their story as part of a Veterans History Project event, or even obtaining an official proclamation recognizing the week and the profession by state and local leaders or your favorite judge,” Anderson said.
