We are CCRA!

President's Message

CCRA started March off running to Boot Camp.  What a successful day for the court reporting students in California!  I’d like to thank every court reporter who sponsored a student.  Students enjoyed the wonderful opportunity of educational classes as well as networking with reporters and other students.  Attendees walked away motivated and energized!

March 4th’s CCRA Strategic Planning Session was a success!  Reporters, students, and teachers from around the state were invited to join the brainstorming conversations pertinent to our profession.  Be ready to network with your colleagues and friends when the CCRA call to action appears in the coming weeks!

NCRA's Contracting Out

Since NCRA has taken a “neutral” stance on contracting and will no longer actively and publicly register support for anti-contracting legislation, CCRA and other state associations have written letters to the NCRA Board of Directors urging them to uphold professional ethical guidelines to keep our profession in an impartial and objective position.

As the upcoming NCRA Board of Directors meeting is fast approaching, 24 states in our country, including CCRA, have requested to attend the March 9th NCRA board meeting by video conference or other electronic means so that we may have a seat at the table in discussing this very important issue.  Unfortunately, NCRA does not have the technological means to facilitate attendance in that way.

To protect our members, to protect the public, and to protect the integrity of our profession, CCRA stands together with the leaders of our industry across the country.

Letters to NCRA:

Massachusetts Court Reporters Association
