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.


Legislative Update

We want you all to know that your CCRA board is not afraid of any challenge!  We must create a level playing field for all firm owners and freelance reporters in our profession.  We will not back down, and we will give it our all!  Next year promises to be just as exciting and riveting as they get.  Click here to read more.

Attend our convention in Yosemite and we will give you the inside scoop and the insight into our Campaign to get these bills passed! 

CCRA is committed to protecting our profession.  Legislative fights such a SB 270 and AB2629 cost thousands of dollars. We need your help to continue the fight.  Please donate to the CCRA Special Fund.

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.
