What an amazing convention in Springfield!

The 2019 Annual Convention turned out to be a great event and for those that went we appreciate you coming and for those that couldn't make it this year we are sorry that you missed a great convention.  We will be posting pictures up on the website and on the social media pages.

Thanks for being part of ILCRA and making the industry better.

NCRA is collecting confirmed reports of digital audio recording failures, and they have requested each individual state submit these reports to them, so we can aggregate evidence to help us counter common arguments that digital reporting companies make.  If you hear of such failures in Illinois, please submit them to Region 2 Representative-Official Kim Cottrell.  Her contact information is in the sidebar in this newsletter.

ILCRA recently published a lovely graphic illustrating the difference between stenotype reporting and digital reporting, which was developed by Region 1 Representative-Freelance Mary Ann Casale. That brochure can be found here.
