SueLynn Morgan, a past president of NCRA and the Oklahoma Court Reporters Association is leaving her position as an official reporter and moving on to a new career. She is joining
FTR, a digital recording software company.
She was one of the members of NCRA that pushed for inclusion of digital reporters to be members of NCRA. So apparently she feels digital is a viable option and has for some time.
It really feels like a betrayal to a lot of people (and let's face it, it is). I am sure she probably sees it differently, probably as an opportunity to make some money. But in reality she is turning her back on traditional court reporting, in my view.
I think she is going to be a sales rep because there really is no other reason for her to join a digital company.
You join a company (or a cause) because it has some type of benefit to you. That benefit could be monetary, political or moral or a common cause.
Her most logical reason for joining a digital company is for monetary benefit. You wouldn't join a company for monetary benefit if that benefit was less than the monetary benefit you have in your present career. As president of NCRA, she was way up there in status, and probably money. A real good sales rep makes lots of money.

She was an official in, I believe, Oklahoma. So whatever an official in OK makes.
And positions in NCRA are voluntary, no payment received.
And... there are more positions in a company than sales rep and CEO. :)
"There is a whole new board with a whole new vision in NCRA, a vision towards promoting stenographic reporters since the membership spoke and they're finally listening."
I'll believe it the day I see it. Until then, I'm getting richer one red cent at a time, saving my membership money and putting it to good use elsewhere.
