2016 National Court Reporting & Captioning Week kicks Off Feb. 14
The National Court Reporters Association (NCRA), the country’s leading organization representing stenographic court reporters, broadcast and CART captioners, and legal videographers, has designated Feb. 14-20 as the 2016 National Court Reporting & Captioning Week. The week-long event is designed to celebrate the court reporting and captioning professions and to help raise public awareness about the growing number of employment opportunities the career offers.
Court reporters, captioners, CART providers, state court reporter associations, and court reporting schools around the country will participate in the week-long event by hosting an array of activities such as visits to high schools to showcase the profession, open houses, Veterans History Project interviews, media outreach, and more. To help celebrate the week, NCRA has made available a vast collection of resources including informational and marketing materials developed for its Take Note campaign that was launched in response to an industry-wide outlook report that determined a need existed to fill jobs in the field.
