Associations and Memberships ~ In order to maintain a healthy court reporter profession, I think that one needs to participate in organizations that look to improve the profession through efforts of continuing education and bringing people together for healthy discussion.
In that regard, I belong to the Washington Court Reporters Association (WCRA), having served two terms as vice president, the Freelance Shorthand Reporters of Washington (FSRWA), where I currently serve as president, the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) where I have been a member in good standing for nearly 30 years.
