A Message from our MCRA President

Wow! Our 46th Annual MCRA Annual Spring Conference has come and gone and we’re so proud!  We had so many amazing speakers to join us this year including our own NCRA representative, Ms. Sue Perry.  And then there is always the joy of seeing old friends and making new ones.  A special thank you to everyone who worked so hard to help make our spring conference such a success.  We look forward to seeing you in October at our Fall “One-Day” Conference.  The details will be coming  soon.

Members, I want you all to know how grateful I am to be here and express my overwhelming gratitude for the support and trust given to me over the years.  Looking back when I was Treasurer, I was able to learn a great deal along the way.  One of those experiences was being alongside the president, traveling as a representative, and participating in meetings both state and nationally, which has helped me fill these big, awesome shoes today.  We have had some wonderful people come up through the ranks who are still an awesome support system today. I can remember when I first joined MSCRA.  I was so excited and ready to volunteer wherever I could, and as I think back, I still have that same excitement ten years later.

MSCRA and its membership has come a long way and has seen many ups and downs, but we have managed to get through it all gracefully.  My hope is to only move us forward in the right direction and grow our base through membership and to have fiscal soundness, to the best of my ability.  My only request of you is that we work as a team and work towards the same goals for the sake of the court reporting future and our beautiful Association.

Again, thank you so much for allowing me to further my progress and growth as an official reporter, friend, and mentor.  I wish you all much success and prosperity and let us make this an awesome year as we can make it.

Professionalism Measured by Excellence and Ethics.
