Day One: 2016 NCRA Firm Owners Conference

After a long day of travels I have made it to beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico for the 2016 NCRA Firm Owners Conference.
The event, which is designed exclusively for owners and managers of court reporting and captioning firms, is being held for the first time in the Caribbean, and I have zero complaints about the location at the Caribe Hilton.  I will have more info and fun facts about this unique hotel later today.
As one of the most prestigious NCRA events, I am looking forward to the many presentations and sessions that are planned for the next two days.  Of course the biggest perk will be chatting and relaxing with my fellow court reporting firm owners and managers.  I promise to share with you all the conference highlights and fun through pictures, posts, and videos on our Optima Juris social media channels.  It is going to be an amazing time, so stay tuned to get an insider look of all the happenings live from Puerto Rico.

Don’t miss a second of the action and fun!
