9:00-10:00 a.m NCRA Strong (.10 Credits)
Presenter: Phyllis Craver Lykken, RPR, CLR – NCRA Strong Task Force Chair

NCRA and its members are facing challenges in the widespread implementation of digital recording in the states. Digital recording is increasingly penetrating the market as state courts and private court reporting firms are turning to this technology in response to regional reporter shortages and budgetary constraints, seemingly in disregard of the dangers posed by digital recording and undeterred by the inferior quality of court records produced by digital recording technology. This trend is perhaps the greatest modern threat to the stenographic court reporting profession, to NCRA’s members, and more importantly, to those who are the consumers of our services. NCRA alone currently does not have the resources and boots-on-the-ground information to fight the proliferation of digital recording in the most effective way without you.
