For my birthday this year, I have a Facebook fundraiser for donations to Project To Advance Stenographic Reporting Inc. I’ve chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me. This profession has been such a blessing for me. Who knew when I first started this journey and chose this profession as a teenager where it would take me!
I love to celebrate my birthday all month long — it’s such a short month so I can get away with it; right? There’s lots for me to celebrate in February, as Court Reporting & Captioning Week happens every February as well.
“NCRA’s Court Reporting & Captioning Week is the perfect opportunity for each of us to celebrate our wonderful profession by recognizing what we do, who we serve and how we impact so many lives, whether in the courtroom, the deposition room, the board room or the classroom,” said NCRA President Sue A. Terry, FAPR, RPR, CRR, CRC, a freelance court reporter from Springfield, Ohio.
Project Steno promotes the profession of stenographic court reporting (and captioning) to young people through social media and community outreach, with the goal of building a robust pipeline of students into school and graduating them in two years.
To our valued clients: In addition to this birthday fundraiser, Omega Reporting (your Memphis court reporters) will donate $10 for every deposition that is scheduled and goes forward in the balance of February to Project Steno.
Here’s a publication from NCRA for our attorney clients that may be helpful for your new associates in your firm. It’s called Making the Record and is complimentary. The purpose of this publication is to help the bench and bar better understand the factors that help make a clear record.
