Just thought it might be of interest to forum readers that Merrill Corporation bought a dozen new JCR Court Reporting Listing ads in the May issue of JCR.
Those dozen new ads were as follows:
3. District of Columbia
8. New York
The NCRA board of directors has said those JCR Court Reporter Listing ads must be sold at below their market value or else the advertisers would cancel their ads, and that, after all, the NCRA board of directors giving low ad rates is merely helping NCRA members who are freelance agency owners.
I said I wish average non-freelance agency owner members could get some preferential treatment and such a wonderful benefit as is given freelance agency owners, a benefit worth far more than any dues those freelance agency owners pay.
I have always said what about the poor average NCRA members who must have their dues raised to cover revenue shortfalls while the NCRA board is discounting ad prices as a special favor to freelance agencies, some of whose owners are NCRA members and some of whose owners are not NCRA members.
Anybody check? Is Merrill Corporation a member of NCRA to benefit from ads sold below their market value?
