On Feb. 20, 2016, the Los Angeles County Court Reporters Association hosted a “Day at the Races” to celebrate the profession with peers, friends, family, students, and the general public. In addition to family and friends, invitations were extended to judges, attorneys, courtroom staff, students, and broadcast and CART captioners. The day included a lunch buffet, a signature drink of “StenoRitas,” a Derby Hat Contest, and a special spotlight on the profession during the fourth race when the Los Angeles County Court Reporters Association was officially recognized in the program.

“This was a unique way to come together with our justice partners, have a lot of fun, and introduce a wide audience to the profession of court reporting,” wrote Julie Granger, RPR, in her nomination. “Getting the word out about court reporting countrywide can be a logistically difficult endeavor due to the physical size and scope of the country. This event was a great way to celebrate the week and put our wonderful
profession in the spotlight in front of a wide public audience.”
