NCRA Connect Virtual 2020 Wrap-up

By National Court Reporters Association

Attendees at NCRA’s Connect Virtual 2020 event held August 7-9 enjoyed an array of insightful and informative sessions over the course of nearly three days. Sessions addressed topics from tips and tricks for making more money; organizing home offices; working smarter, not harder; and writing shorter and faster.

Below is a brief look at some of the major points made by the presenters in each of their sessions.

Everything has its place

Presenter Kristina Tan, a freelance court reporter from Richmond, VA, shared an in-depth, live tour of her home office with attendees who took part in her session entitled Learn the Skills to Organize Your Office, Your Daily Work Equipment, Your Life. Tan shared everything from why she loves her docking station (because when she gets home from a job she just plugs her laptop into it and her office comes alive) to showing off her 32-inch monitor and how she uses the app Snap to display multiple screens on it at one time. Another of her favorite office accessories is a cord keeper that helps keep all of her cords and adapters neatly together.

NCRA Connect Virtual 2020 - Take Advantage of Ability to Review Sessions

By National Court Reporters Association

Amber Fraass, RPR, a freelancer in South Ogden, UT, ended NCRA Connect Virtual 2020 with a new goal in mind.

“Each class that I watched really had some value to me,” Fraass said. “The realtime presentation by Anissa Nierenberger [RPR, CRR, CRC, CRI, a captioner from Boise, ID, and owner of Caption Masters] was one of my top three favorite presentations. I had not really given much thought about getting my CRR until I watched her presentation. Her suggestions of shortening writing and the ‘three strikes you’re out’ rule really clicked for me. I have now set a goal to obtain my CRR and have started a daily practice and note review to look for ways to improve as a reporter and to reach another skill level.”

Fraass said the virtual conference worked well for her this year since she has a newborn daughter and a son who is not quite two years old.

Margary Rogers, RPR, CRI, an official court reporter in Washington, D.C., said she also appreciated the different ways you can experience a virtual conference.
