Outgoing NCRA President announces new campaign, highlights importance of education

NCRA Immediate Past President Nancy Varallo, RDR, CRR, FAPR, called on the association’s membership today to support the future of the court reporting profession by investing in Students First, a new campaign designed to engage court reporting schools and reach out to key audiences. Varallo addressed attendees at the Annual Business Meeting held during NCRA’s 2014 Convention & Expo taking place July 31 – Aug 3 in San Francisco.

The Students First initiative, approved by NCRA’s Board of Directors during the convention, will launch next month and include a marketing and public relations campaign designed to engage NCRA-approved court reporting schools to reach out to key audiences.

“The future I see for us is one where court reporters are sophisticated business people, able to succeed in a competitive market; where our schools are successful and graduate eager young men and women into our ranks; where the vibrancy of our profession attracts people to our field and our association,” Varallo said.
