Live & Recorded Speakers:
StenoFest is the FIRST virtual conference for the court reporting community! That means you'll be able to attend from ANYWHERE, and still retain a part of that in-person experience.
Sign up, log in, experience the future of court reporting conventions. We've put together a 2-day schedule that we believe is the best court reporting lineup ever assembled! Speakers will be LIVE (video), streaming to you in the moment, and taking your questions at the end of their seminars.* And if you need CEUs, this is the place to be! You'll be able to attend StenoFest for a LOW cost, then submit your CEU certificates to NCRA for their fee. 17 hours of CEUs available!
*As indicated on the schedule, up to 5 seminars will be pre-recorded and streamed.
Welcome Hall - Will have access to all areas of StenoFest.
Seminar Hall - All seminars will be presented here.
Vendor Hall - You'll be able to access all vendor booths and interact with them!
Networking Hall - You can mingle with fellow attendees by chat.
Court reporting conferences can be expensive! StenoFest is our attempt to lower the cost to attendees, while creating a satisfying convention experience. We've assembled the best speakers. We've created the lowest cost. We're using the newest technology. We're creating hours and hours of CEU opportunities. We're creating an experience! Spend two days with your steno family!
We're not going to lie - we're not 100% certain how this event will be received. This has never been done before. But thanks to the generous time from our speakers and the backing of our sponsors, we're swinging for the fences! Join us and be a part of court reporting history! In addition, 10% of the profits will go to Project Steno.

Sorry, but because of the CEU system in place, virtual tickets are only for the use of the purchaser.
Is StenoFest really live? Is it recorded?
Unless otherwise indictated on the schedule, all seminars are LIVE! A few siminars have been pre-recorded for presentation due to the speakers' inability to attend. But the bulk of StenoFest is LIVE - that's the fun part, right?!

How do the CEUs work?
The StenoFest system will track which seminars you watch from start to finish during the live event. After a seminar is complete, you'll be asked to answer a couple simple questions. You can do those directly after the seminar or at the end of StenoFest. Once completed, your CEU certificates will show online. You will then submit your CEUs to NCRA for a charge if $45 if you use a single document.
Read it here.
Are there multiple tracks? Will I have to choose which seminars to attend?
There's only 1 track, so you can attend ALL the seminars!
So I'll have to be on the computer for about 20 hours over the course of 2 days?
Yep. It's like binge watching an awesome TV show :) Breaking Briefs. The Big Steno Theory. Well, you get the idea.
What time zone is StenoFest?
All times are PST (that's west coast).
Will my state accept these as CEUs as well?
Sorry, you'll have to check with your state for that. NCRA pre-qualified these seminars, not individual states.
Will NCRA charge $45 to submit each .1 CEU? That would be expensive!
Yes, it would! You will get a certificate from StenoFest for each seminar you attend. All seminars you view during the live event will show up on the form - NCRA will charge $45 for you to submit.
