OCRA welcomes students!  We encourage you to join us and enjoy the many benefits of membership.

Here is a short list of activities of our Student Liaison Committee:

• Holiday tours of downtown courthouses and freelance offices
Mentoring by professional members (download the application)
• Networking with members at our conventions, with opportunities to volunteer and earn room reimbursement
• Yearly ROSE Award, including a $500 cash award

We all remember being in court reporting school and appreciate your struggles and hours and hours of practice. We want you to remember that we did it, and you can, too. You will push past those speed blocks and get to 225. We look to forward to helping you through.

Please check out the links below and feel free to contact us if you would like additional information on connecting with a mentor, our ROSE Award, attending conventions, and testing.

OCRA loves our students!
