Letter from the President:
Spring?   Is it really spring already?   Yes, it is, and we have the pollen to prove it.  I hope this message finds you all doing well, working hard, and playing harder.  I was thinking last night about all that has happened since my last message and at first I thought, There can’t be that much -- right?  WRONG….

Call for Action:
​The greatest threat currently facing our profession is the shortage of court reporting students.  As a member of our profession, we each have an obligation to do our part in recruiting.  In an effort to combat the issue of student shortages, KCRA is asking its membership to contact local high school guidance counselors -- professionals that steer students into various career paths -- and educate them about court reporting and captioning...

NCRA members representing 26 state court reporting associations met with their respective representatives on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., March 22, the final day of the Association's Legislative Boot Camp, and urged them to support the reauthorization of the Training for Realtime Writers grants.  The grants are part of the Higher Education Act passed by Congress in 2009.
