OUR MISSION...

Founded in 1949, The Maryland Court Reporters Association (MCRA) is committed to advancing the court reporting profession by promoting court reporters as experts in the field of verbatim court reporting, providing continuing education to its members while advocating quality service, high ethical standards, and the application of state-of-the-art technology.  MCRA has provided social and educational opportunities to the court reporting community in Maryland.  Our profession has changed since 1949, but we remain committed to the same goals and purposes.

We welcome you to our website and invite you to take a tour.  If you are a court reporter, broadcast captioner, student or CART provider, we hope you will consider joining our association.  An application can be found by clicking on Become A Member.  Realtime reporting students will find the Maryland Schools section informative.
