By National Court Reporters Association

Nationwide, NCRA members are beginning to share what they plan to do to celebrate 2019 Court Reporting & Captioning Week February 9-16.

“Court Reporting & Captioning Week is one of my favorite celebrations of our profession. It provides a wonderful opportunity for us to unite across the nation and let us showcase together not only the importance of what we do but also the aspects that make careers in court reporting and captioning so rewarding.
