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.
