The guardians of the record have been officially recognized by Congress!
This week, February 17th through February 23rd, kicked off the first official National Court Reporting and Captioning Week, according to the NCRA.
As the leading court reporting association in the nation, the NCRA has cited that this special week now acknowledges “the hard work of court reporters and broadcast captioners nationwide.” It was even acknowledged in Congressional Record on February 14th by Congressman Ron Kind of Wisconsin.
Congressman Kind’s wife is a court reporter… He must know firsthand the dedication the profession commands. Poor Congressman Kind has probably had many dinner cancellations, many weekends interrupted, and many nights ruined by last minute call-ins, daily copies and unbearable witnesses!
Thank you for the recognition, Folks…. it’s not easy!
