Welcome to the digital doorstep of the oldest shorthand society in America.  Because of this professional legacy, we feel a special responsibility to ensure that stenographic reporting remains the Gold Standard of capturing the spoken word. 

Under our contemporary banner of NYSCRANow, we provide performance and knowledge tools as well as tangible employment advantages. 

CertifyNOW allows candidates to test remotely and whenever ready.  The OCA (NY state court) recognizes our ACR certification for provisional appointment.  The AO (federal court) accepts our RCR certification for salary and other income enhancement. 

StudentsNOW provides our future colleagues with real-world knowledge.  And each year we award reporting students with thousands of dollars through our Horizon Scholarship program. 

We do much more than these examples and there is much more to be done.  So I invite you to join us.  We need your membership support.  We also need your thoughts and your experience.  Others voluntarily work year-round, sometimes year after year, on issues that affect your profession and your income.  If you cannot join them, we can use your help only from time to time. 

The future is in our hands.  And our future starts NOW!

Respectfully Submitted,
Dominick M. Tursi
NYSCRA President
