    Are you interested in promoting our profession and planting the seeds of success in young minds?

    ACRA is looking for volunteers to attend the following high school career days.  If you are interested in assisting, please email Robin at for more information.

    - Tuesday, October 11 @ Pinnacle High School from 6 - 8 p.m. (need someone to arrive for setup at 5:30 p.m.)

    - Tuesday, October 18 @ North Canyon High School from 4 - 7 p.m. (need someone to arrive fro setup at 3:30 p.m.)

    - Thursday, October 20 @ Shadow Mountain High School from 4:30 - 7 p.m. 

    - Wednesday, November 9 @ Dysart High School from 7:15 a.m. - 2:15 p.m.

    ACRA's goal is to have TWO bodies at our table at each event, it makes it more fun and it would be great to have an official and a freelancer at each one to give the students a couple perspectives (or captioner or CART provider).

    A word from your Pres:

    First of all, I want to thank all of you who have stepped up to cover the career days that are covered. A BIG hearfelt THANK YOU !!

    Secondly, I will tell you I've covered several of these high school career fairs, and it REALLY is rewarding and actually fun to interact with the kids. They're ALWAYS super interested in the machine, of course, and the job itself, and it's kinda refreshing to be around young kids searching/inquiring information as they search for their future careers.

    Across most of the country, student enrollment is waning in a BIG way, and these high school job fairs are the PERFECT opportunity to "get the word out" about reporting.

    So......................I am BESEECHING all of you to dig deep and try to find a time slot that works for you. It's IDEAL, if not imperative, to have two people at each table. As Robin says, it's more fun and less hectic with two reporters covering.

    ACRA provides give-away swag, table banner, hand outs, essentially everything you need for a great presentation. Robin and I are also available at any time to answer any questions. PLEASE, PLEASE, this critical time for the future of court reporting, I again ask you to "step up."

    Laura, ACRA Pres

    Passing of Kahryn E. Nix Wolfe

    Kahryn passed away on Thursday, March 1, 2018.

    Kahryn started her reporting career with Bartelt, King in the early '80s.    In 1985 she opened her own firm of Nix & Associates, which later became Driver & Nix.  Recently, she rejoined Bartelt to form Bartelt | Nix.

    Kahryn was active with ACRA and served as it's President, 1992-1993.

    Her slogan,"The name to know when you need a court reporter" was truly the epitome of who Kahryn was.   She was a wealth of information and loved to network, working with many firms across the country and beyond.  Kahryn will be greatly missed by all within the legal and court reporting community.

    Funeral services will be Saturday March 10, 2018, at 2:00 p.m.  Valley of the Sun Mortuary and Cemetery.  10940 E. Chandler Heights Road, Chandler, Arizona  85248

    Congratulations, Danielle.

    The following report is from the NCRA News pages:


    The National Court Reporters Foundation’s newly elected Trustees began their three-year terms on Aug. 12 after being inducted into service at the Foundation’s annual Board of Trustees meeting taking place in conjunction with the 2017 NCRA Convention & Expo in Las Vegas, Nev.

    The following individuals were elected to serve on the 2017-2018 NCRF Board of Trustees: Danielle Griffin, RPR, Phoenix, Ariz.; Karen G. Teig, RPR, CRR, CMRS, Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Sandy VanderPol, FAPR, RMR, CRR, Lotus, Calif.

    Danielle Griffin represents the future of the profession and can aid NCRF in its continued focus on helping students finish court reporting school and new reporters acquire the opportunities to thrive in the profession. She grew up in the court reporting field, working in her mother’s firm in Phoenix from the time she was in middle school, an experience that gives her more in-depth understanding of the business and profession than the average new reporter. As a new reporter with diverse experience and contacts, Griffin commits fully to everything she does. Griffin comes from a culture of volunteerism and strong fundraising experience and understands the value of networking and using those contacts to help make whatever she’s tasked with successful.
