From the President

I hope you will be attending TechCon in Scottsdale, Arizona, April 19-21. It’s the NCRA’s most revolutionary approach to education that you won’t want to miss. Enjoy networking with other reporters, learn the latest developments in reporting, and benefit from valuable educational certification programs. I encourage you to go and have some fun!

A special “congratulations” goes out to Susan Graham, an ABI reporter from Westlake Village, California, who recently received her Registered Merit Reporter certification. Currently, there are only upwards of 3,000 Registered Merit Reporters in the U.S., so this is quite an accomplishment!

“I am thankful that I can still work and my hands have hung in there after 34 years of doing this!” Susan said.

Our hat is off to you, Susan, and to all of you who are diligent in your work, committed to our clients, punctual to depositions, and continually taking steps to excel in your profession.

We are grateful that you are on the Atkinson-Baker team.

Best regards,

On a Saturday, everyone is doing something.

The children are playing outside. The dad is getting the mail. The mom is knitting. But the dog is starving.

The next day, everyone is doing the same thing but the dog is fed.

Who fed the dog?
