Celebrate the profession with an official proclamation

NCRA members and state affiliates, now is the perfect time to reach out to your state leaders to secure an official proclamation recognizing Feb. 3-10 as 2024 Court Reporting & Captioning Week. States that send a copy of their official proclamation to will be entered into a drawing to win a 2024 NCRA Conference & Expo registration. The deadline to submit official proclamations is Fri., Feb. 16. The winner will be announced in the Feb. 21 JCR Weekly.

Congratulations to the Alabama Court Reporters Association for being the first state to submit an official proclamation signed by Gov. Kay Ivey recognizing the week.

“A neat way to help promote the profession during Court Reporting & Captioning Week is to secure official proclamations from state and local officials recognizing the event and the essential services we provide to the legal field and public,” NCRA President Kristin M. Anderson, M.A., RPR, FCCR, an official court reporter from Denton, Texas, said. “Last year our members secured proclamations in more than two dozen states. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this year we could secure one from each state especially since we are also celebrating NCRA’s 125th Anniversary,” she added.
