Welcome to the New York State Court Reporters Association (NYSCRA) website. 


Hello, Former Members,

Our friendly Operation Reachout! team of Elizabeth Brucie, Margaret Carney, Joshua B. Edwards, Diane M. Molas, Donna Sadowski, and Nancy Silberger is very excited to connect with you on a personal basis.

All renewing Former Members will be entered into a drawing to win a $150 VISA gift card!

NYSCRA is pleased to announce that the New York State Unified Court System will now recognize our voluntary certifications, the RCR and ACR, for provisional employment.  Our ACR and RCR members are immediately eligible to earn above-average salaries and receive both medical and vacation benefits.

Voluntary Certification Committee Chair, Debra A. Levinson, CSR-RMR-CRR-RCR, worked closely with OCA to encourage them to recognize NYSCRA’s certifications.  This means that members who hold the RCR or ACR certifications are not required to take an assessment test for an available position.  

We anticipate many reporters registering for our association’s voluntary exams. “Having that ACR or RCR is now like an insurance policy. You never know when the need for an employment change may present itself, and the NYS court system offers a really excellent package,” said Debra A. Levinson.


The New York State Court Reporters Association 2018 Convention was held October 12-14, 2018 at the fabulous Melville Marriott Long Island.




 Below are some pictures taken at the convention.  It was a great time of learning, networking, and friendship.




As President of NYSCRA, I welcome you to our website and invite you to explore all that your Association offers.

We have several member discounts you can take advantage of.  You can find them under "The Association" tab.  If you know of any business who would like to offer the Association member discounts, please feel free to forward their contact information to me.  

Remember, 2019 is a great year for you to get involved with NYSCRA.  You can join a committee, offer suggestions of what you, as a member, would like your Association to address or let us know who/what you might like to see at our 2020 Convention. 

I look forward to making 2019 a great year for our members and NYSCRA.

Nancy Silberger, President
