We are CCRA!

President's Message

February.  The month of Love.  To be a court reporter, whatever facet of our profession, you’ve got to love something about your job. I personally love memorializing testimony in the felony cases I report.

On February 12th, I flew to Sacramento and met up with Board Member Karly Powers and  Immediate Past President Brooke Ryan.  We were present in the Senate chambers when Senator Hannah Beth Jackson from Ventura introduced SCR 95 proclaiming February 10 – 17, 2018 Court Reporting and Captioning week.  While at the Capitol, CCRA lobbyist Ignacio Hernandez kept us busy talking to legislators.  It was a fun day.

The March 3rd Boot Camp is getting closer!  We are targeting our students, new reporters and reporters transitioning from one facet of reporting to another.   Help our new professionals and Sponsor a Student! 

Get ready for an exam!  CCRA will be offering the CRG, Certified Realtime Generalist, exam as well as the CCG, CART test. Take advantage of this opportunity to check your skills and attain CART certification or Realtime certification and possibly qualify for a realtime bonus!
