NYSCRA is holding a social event on February 17. If you are reading this, you’re invited! If you’re not a NYSCRA member yet but a fan of my blog and you show up, I will spot your $18 entrance fee, but I can only afford to do that for 10 of my fans. Go ahead and tell them Chris Day wrote on his blog he’d spot me. RSVP today! Sponsored and co-sponsored by Diamond Reporting and ASSCR. Anthony Frisolone will be showing us around CaseCAT. Vera Monaco’s going to be giving Eclipse advice. Reid Goldsmith is going to be moderating the student Q&A Panel. I have to say, I am absolutely pleased every time a company puts down money on the development and growth of stenographic reporting. I myself have donated to NYSCRA a time or two, and I hope to see more of that in the coming months and years. We all collectively have a part to play in keeping reporting vibrant.
This is an important time for reporting and NYSCRA. This is a step in the right direction in terms of having a presence, answering questions, building a community, and always getting people to be more knowledgeable with regard to their software and potential opportunities. I encourage students to go and ask questions. I encourage working reporters to go and ask questions. It might be embarrassing, but quite frankly, your question might help ten other people in the room who couldn’t ask it. We’ve got a message for President Nancy Silberger and President-Elect Joshua Edwards: We love what you’re doing. Keep it up.
For those who cannot see the image linked at the top, the event is February 17, 2019, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 792 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York.
Special thanks to Devora Hackner, who has been very good about making sure that everyone’s got an invite and encouraging more people to be invited via this blog.
Aside from that, there will also be a happy hour in Rochester. That’s February 13, 2019 at 145 Culver Road, Rochester, New York. That’s 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. I can’t attend that one but I hope there are pictures of it in our next issue of the Transcript!
