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

Now is an excellent time 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 an upcoming convention.  We also need committed mentors to help students as they prepare to graduate. 

And if you are not yet a member, consider joining us.  We have several membership categories and we can only be strong if we have the involvement of people like you who care about the field. 

Joshua B. Edwards, President



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.

 NYSCRA Mentorship Program

NYSCRA is happy to reinstate its mentoring program, matching working reporters with students in the court reporting schools.  If you'd be interested in helping these future reporters by mentoring them and providing tips and encouragement, please contact me at donnasadowski1959@gmail.com.
