NCRA’s Membership, Marketing, and Outreach Committee invites everyone to celebrate

The members of NCRA’s Membership, Marketing, and Outreach Committee (MMO) are inviting everyone to celebrate 2024 Court Reporting & Captioning Week with them by participating in a social media campaign that includes an idea to share each day of the week. The week-long event is taking place Feb. 3-10.

“The Membership, Marketing, and Outreach Committee is so excited about the upcoming 2024 Court Reporting & Captioning Week because it not only provides the potential for an international platform to spread awareness about the stenographic profession, but also this year we are celebrating the 125th Anniversary of our national association,” said Denee Vadell, RPR, a court reporter and captioner from Edison, N.J., and chair of the MMO Committee.

To kick off the campaign, the MMO Committee will post a video compilation on Feb. 3 of members sharing why they are grateful for stenography and ask others to also post a short video and answer the question: “Why are you grateful for stenography?” Be sure to use the hashtags #spreadstenoseries and #CRCW2024.

Below are suggestions for the remainder of the week.

Feb. 4 – Self-Care Sunday: Post a picture or video of your favorite self-care activity and tag us at #CRCW2024.

“We understand that sometimes it’s difficult to carve out time to participate in everything we may want to, so the committee decided to help assist court reporters, captioners, and steno students everywhere by offering up some easy ways to celebrate via social media. By everyone participating in this campaign as well as any other activities they may have planned, we are confident our profession will be introduced to the masses,” added Vadell, who also serves on NCRA’s Brand Ambassadors Committee.
