2021 Seas the Day Conference, Wilmington, NC


Due to COVID-19, we are looking to reschedule to April 17-18, 2021


Total CEU Credits – 1.00

The time has once again come – time for YOU to Seas the Day!  Join your fellow reporters as we give ourselves that shot in the arm to be the best we can be.  We have a jam-packed agenda full of advice and tips from the experts on stepping up your game to combat the challenges out there in our world – digital, contracting, etc.  Let’s Do This!

  • Eve Barrett – One of the latest members of our court reporting tribe (she’s in Florida but she’s adopted us as her extended tribe) is joining us to share her energy and enthusiasm for this profession and learn how to maximize our personal potential. She and her associate, Rebecca, will be sharing tricks for getting over the mental hurdles of realtime as well as the hands-on side of setting up hardware for CaseCat and Eclipse.
  • The Varallos – Ed and Nancy – As experts in our field, Nancy will share with us information on rebuilding our profession, Project Steno, the business of client service and much more. And as icing on the cake, Ed (six-time speed champion) will present his wisdom for writing shorter, writing realtime, and tips and tricks to make your workday easier.
  • NCRA Representative – Our very own NCRA rep will join us to give us the latest exciting news of NCRA 2.0 and what’s happening in our industry nationwide.
  • We’ve built in time throughout the weekend for networking, idea sharing and just hanging with those that get what we do.

We are in a critical time in our profession – time to join together and combat the methods trying to infiltrate our profession.  If you aren’t feeling the crunch yet, just wait.  It’s coming.  Stepping up our game, joining forces and giving back to our association with our time and talents is so very necessary.  Join us in starting a fire and let’s make a spark by “seas-ing” one day at a time!
