Welcome To RISRA

It’s That Time Again...
“Active Shooter Preparedness Workshop”


Dear Members, Associate Members, and Students:

For those of you who attended the last RISRA seminar, I’d like to thank you for your support! I hope you enjoyed the event. It was a pleasure to see so many of you together as a group.

Remember our theme, “We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

RISRA works collaboratively with NCRA to provide its members approved Continuing Education Credit at a substantially reduced rate, and our goal is to provide semi-annual events. In addition, though, I always keep my eyes and ears open for “other” opportunities for its members to earn CEU credit and retain their certification(s), and I promise to share that with you.

Any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely yours,
Lori Spremulli Confreda

We are always looking for feedback from our members.
If you have any comments or suggestions on ways to enhance our web site and/or the RISRA organization, please contact us.

Please Consider Sponsoring A Student
NCRA headquarters has been flooded with requests from students who would like to join NCRA under the Student Sponsorship Program. Through member sponsorships, NCRA has created a way for students to join NCRA for their first year at no cost to them. However, due to high demand, there is currently a waitlist, and the students need help from you.

For only $65 per student, you can help a future court reporter gain access to the following:

  • An online mentorship program
  • Deep discounts to NCRA certifications
  • A Staples discount that will allow them to purchase school supplies
  • Discounts on store items like the RPR Study Guide
  • Ability to use the student rate for the NCRA Annual Convention

If you’re interested in sponsoring a student, use the link below to download the form and return the completed form to membership@ncra.org.
