President's Message

What a great time for all of us! It seems as if this is – finally – the year of the woman! Of course, every year should be the year of the woman because we actually should be running everything. That’s neither here nor there. But for a profession dominated by women, what a phenomenal time!

The two most important bills in recent history for our industry – sponsored solely by CCRA – are moving along. Not only do official reporters and official reporter pro tems deserve an overdue transcript rate increase, the freelance reporters and CSR-owned firm owners will hopefully have fairness and accountability in competition.


Let's Work Together To Get a Transcript Rate Increase!

URGENT CALL TO ACTION:  Your CCRA legislative advocates and our lobbyist, Ignacio Hernandez at Hernandez Strategy Group, have been working around the clock this legislative year to advocate for your profession.  AB2629 is on the Governor's desk!  If signed, this bill will increase our transcript fees by 30%; phased in over the next 5 years.  We need ALL REPORTERS to write a letter to the Governor urging him to SIGN AB2629.  Please write and send your letter ASAP!  Encourage all your friends to write a letter as well.  DEADLINE TO SUBMIT LETTERS IS September 14th @ Noon!

CCRA e-Compendium

CCRA is proud to break new ground by becoming the first court reporters association in the nation to launch an e-Compendium, offering exactly the same high level content as our yearly paperback publication now in digital form. You will no longer have to buy multiple versions as we are consolidating the freelance/CART and official compendiums into one easy-to-use app. Click here for additional information.

Thank You!

CCRA would like to say THANK YOU to the Speaker Roster.  We are very grateful for your willingness to volunteer your time to speak at your local court reporting schools to talk about this great profession and discuss the programs we offer for students.
