    KCRA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

    "A BIG TIME IN THE LITTLE APPLE"

    Come join us for the annual convention and have some camaraderie with other court reporters around the area.  Come listen to some fabulous speakers, including Anissa Nierenberger doing seminars on her program Dictionary Jumpstart, Say YES to CART/Caption, and Terminate Transcript Turmoil, along with some other fabulous speakers at the beautiful Bluemont Hotel in downtown Manhattan right next to Aggieville.  Come join us for some special social events so you can meet up with old and new court reporting friends.

    ***If you need to sign up for the social event Aggieville Olympics, student registration donation or legislative donation separately because of a governmental entity or a freelance firm paying only for convention registration, there is additional events set up for those things and you can make those donations there separately.

    "Every man owes a part of his time and money to the business or industry in which he is engaged.  No man has a moral right to withhold his support from an organization that is striving to improve conditions within his sphere."

    Consider donating to the legislative fund.   We accept payments monthly, bi-annually or annually.  We ask each individual reporter for a minimum of $75/year to help protect our profession and to have the funds available to fight for the legislative issues we need or want to fight for.  If you wish to donate in a way other than annually at $75, please contact Mary Kay Howe, KCRA Treasurer, kcra.treasurer@outlook.com, and she can set up a separate payment plan.

    Thank you for your donation!!!

    Legislative donation:  $75 annually
